My family has been touched by The Yellow Ribbon Community. My Uncle Jeff just retired from the Air Force, but before doing so, he was deployed twice. Each time he had to leave his wife and three children. It was not an easy choice for him, but he knew when he signed up that he would need to protect and serve our country in many ways and this was just another one of those ways. It was hard for him to be gone, to fight for America, to fight for our way of life, he went each time and luckily for us, he came back safe and sound both times.
