New beginnings

My Godson is in the Reserves and found out that he is going to be sent to Afghanistan for a year.  His girlfriend, Sadie, who he has been living with for the past year is also being deported.  They decided to get married now before they left and to have a reception when they return.  I am thankful for all our military troops who serve.
