Nope, that's not Mike. Looks a lot like him, but that's Bill, one of Mike's younger brothers. Monday, Feb. 6, Bill set off to Iraq for the second time. He is a 1st Lt. in the Marine Corps and is a Huey (helicopter) pilot. After returning from his first trip to Iraq just this past August, he has left for yet another 7-month deployment. He'll be stationed at Al-Assad Airforce Base.
Bill's bravery and service to our country is appreciated by so many, especially by his family and friends. We wish him well and await his safe return in August of 2006. I'll be sure to post updates as we get them.
