Hello, hometown city of Pembroke

Hello Great Hometown City of Pembroke (Bryan County)

Guess what? I did it again...!!! I recently deployed back to Iraq for the fourth time. My unit left on Aug. 26 to join presently positioned Armed Forces already in Iraq. I knew one day that the chance for me to serve my country and fight for its freedom would soon come again for me.

I didn’t give it a second thought when my name came up to deploy. I knew what had to be done. Even though I left my church, family, friends, and hometown of Pembroke, behind, they all knew that I have a job to do and a commitment to be filled. Yet, anytime that I have a chance to represent Bryan County in the best way, I always jump at the chance to represent our county and surely, "The Great USA."

Until we shall meet again, I love you Bryan County and hopefully, I’ll be home soon. Me and my comrades thank you for your prayers. If any churches, students at school, family, or friends care to send caregiver packages to us soldiers over here, it would sure help make our day.

Mail cards and caregiver packages to:
