Y’all know I bleed red, white and blue, but sometimes, the military just sucks. Like today. When I’d like to spend my little brother’s birthday WITH him, rather than celebrating him from 3,000 miles away. Alas, such is life.
Conner, today I raise my glass to you — you’ve grown from an obnoxious, scrawny, and hilariously inappropriate kid into one of the most mature, honorable, driven, and hard-working men I’ve ever known. Ok, fine, you’re still incredibly inappropriate. But I still find it hilarious. And I’m feeling pretty lucky that two of my best friends in the entire world are my brothers.
I love you so much little (big) brother. Keep making me proud.
Oh, and happy birthday.
