He's Going Back to Afghanistan
You see, he has volunteered to go back.
When he got sent home, it was unexpected. He was mentally prepared to be there until August.
80 came home, 80 stayed. Luck of the draw.
Except now they need 7 more to volunteer to go back until August. And out of the 80 of those who came home, my brother was 1 of only 3 to volunteer to go back there.
His rationale is that he's single. Not married. No children. And now he knows what to expect. He knows what to pack. He knows how it will be. He has friends still there. He wasn't ready to come home. He still has a job to do.
I couldn't be prouder. Or more worried.
He leaves as early as February 3.
