Matthew Elder & Family

Family Hero

Pictured is my nephew Matthew Elder, his wife Brandi & their daughter Kaitlee. This picture was taken just before his deployment to Afaganistan. This makes he 3rd. deployment away from the family. Matthew is our Elder family hero. It is so hard not having him here with us for Christmas. We lost his father (Danny Elder) suddenly last year and having Matt away from us during the holidays is just another blank hole in our hearts. We are very proud of him for what he is doing for our country. But it would be really special to have him appear through the door for Christmas just like some of the commercials I see during this time of year. They bring tears to my eyes because I know how those families feel to want their service men & women home for the holidays.
Merry Christmas and God Bless All the men & women who are serving for our country !
