“My brother, Private First Class Jerome Burt had been gone for 19 months with the Army and he told our mom he couldn’t come home to visit until the end of August but we managed to surprise her. She didn’t have a clue! He’s stationed in Georgia so it’s a good 13-hour car trip. So happy to have my big brother and sister in law home for a week.” – Chanelle B
