Today, at the Crown Coliseum, in Fayetteville, North Carolina, approximately 6000 young men of the 3oth Brigade began the final steps for deployment. A deployment ceremony was held this afternoon for the families and friends of the young men headed overseas. Why is this important? Look at the photo below. The young soldier near the center to the left and below the red seat is my son, Kyle(newly married). He is one of those young soldiers who will be with the 30th. Please keep him and all the soldiers in your thoughts and prayers.
