Update on Steven - Oct 22nd

Steven has now been deployed for almost 7 months! The time has honestly gone faster than we anticipated, but we're really looking forward to seeing each other next month. His EML (environmental morale leave) is scheduled for the end of November, and he'll be home for 18 days! It can't get here quick enough! If all goes as planned, we'll get in two holidays while he's home, Thanksgiving and his birthday, Dec 10th!
He is currently the Platoon Leader for 2nd PL, A co, 4BSTB, 4th Brigade in Afghanistan, Logar Province...if you can keep all of that straight. His days are full of missions, mission planning, briefs, guard duty, training, paperwork, and basically getting the bad guys (for lack of better terms). He has been successful and he is extremely proud of his men, their efforts, and their improvements. Please continue to keep him and all of the soldiers in your thoughts and prayers.

Love it! We can't wait for him to come home next month. Chris is just itching to spend some time with his boyfriend!
