I got great news yesterday, my cousin is coming home! He currently is on his 4th deployment with the Marines as a sniper, and is cutting his deployment short. This time has been harder on him, the first time that he has been hurt. He earned 2 Purple Hearts this tour. The second time he was injured in an IED blast that broke his arm. He was moved to a British Base for recuperation (4-6 weeks) before finishing the tour. Well his arm has not healed the way they want, and they are sending him home. He is set to have surgury either in Germany or the US, but either way he is coming home. I heard even he is glad to be coming back! I know this is going to take so much stress off of his wife and the rest of the family.
