After being deployed to Afghanistan for 8 months, my brother-in-law is HOME! It's so good to have him here after praying for his safety each day. YAY! :-)

I wanted to share this picture of him, taken by photojournalist, David Goldman. A friend of the family found it on The Sacramento Bee's Photoblog "The Frame". (Click on the picture to see it better.)"U.S Marine Cpl. Derek Newton, 21, of Jeddo Mich., with Delta Company 1st Tank Battalion out of Twentynine Palms, Calif., waits to board a helicopter home as he wraps up his deployment Sunday, July 17, 2011 at Combat Out Post Shir Ghazay in Helmand province, Afghanistan.
