The days before Don left for Afghanistan, he was very happy. He loved his job very much and he really wanted to deploy so that he could fly more often. On the day of deployment, he stood in line to board the bus to the airport waving and smiling towards his family. He had every confidence he would return. We never imagined that only three months into this, his second deployment to the middle east, that he would return in a coffin.
