Brothers in Arms by tugscarebear

Brothers in Arms


This is the Second of a two picture series by the very talented toddlergirl.

Fast-forward 20 years later and the two brothers are no longer "playing" Army, they're living it. Both brothers, after graduating High School, decided to follow in their father's footsteps and serve their country by enlisting in the military.

Kyle enlisted in the United States Marines as an Infantry Rifleman while Caiden enlisted in the United States Air Force as a Combat Controller.

After their many months of training and experience, both boys became very good at their respective jobs. Unfortunately, because of their different services, nature of their jobs, and different missions they didn't get to serve side-by-side let alone see each other very often. One year, both boys got deployed to Afghanistan to fight the insurgents and Islamic Terrorists in the area in their respective ways. While at a Forward Operating Base (FOB) the boys ran into each other. They were overjoyed to see each other, as it had been a few years since they had seen each other. They had come a long way from fighting the imaginary forces of evil in their backyard to fighting actual evil in the backyard of another country. Neither of them were there long so they quickly got a picture of each other and sent it to their parents and wives. After embracing each other one last time, the boys departed with their respective units, hoping to meet again down the road some time.
