Yeah, my Uncle is a soldier...

I've had a lot of Obama on here lately... but my Uncle is also a U.S. soldier and I miss him a lot. He's at Fort Bliss in Texas right now, and was in the Middle East earlier this year. We don't know when he'll be sent back again. He's been stop-loss'd. I asked Mommy what that means, and she said that Uncle Eric volunteered 4 years ago, and that when he was supposed to leave this April. But then the Army said, "Nope, we aren't letting you." So he has to stay and put all of his plans for graduate school on hold. I think that's really mean of the Army to do that. But I still love my Uncle Eric and want him to come home soon.

Happy Veteran's Day to my Uncle Eric and to all of his friends!

    I can't imagine how hard it must be on him and your family, but know that we appreciate him on this day and everyday!
