This is Travis and he is a United States Marine. Travis is my adopted brother. Not literally but figuratively. He is the brother of my best friend - who is also named Courtney, pictured below in the black Northface. You will read more about her in future posts, trust me - and we are all one big happy family. I remember when he was like four feet tall... it wasn't that long ago. He still seems too young to be a Marine, but the truth is... he loves his job and we are so, so proud of him. I must also brag for him - he received the "Iron Man" award when he graduated from basic training. So proud of you Trav!

Today, Travis left on his first deployment. I have no doubt that he is going to do a great job and although it is going to be a long deployment for his family and friends, we are so blessed to have him keeping us safe!
We love you Travis! Be safe and come home soon!
