best of luck, orion

First, to clear some things up, I have 2 brothers-in-law. My husband's brother, Luke, who is currently living with us, and my sister, Eirene's husband, Orion.

Yesterday afternoon Orion, who is in the Army Reserves stationed with an Indiana National Guard Unit, was activated with the rest of his unit, and must report for duty at 0730 EST today. Orion will be heading down this way, to the Mississippi coast for relief/recovery operations. The claim is it will be a 10 day deployment. Honestly, Eirene and I think it will be more like 30+ days. If it does end up being what we think, rather what he was told, she, her boys, and Socrates, will come down to visit, hoping to see Orion if/when he gets a day off. If nothing else, they can come down and see my house, which none of them have before.

Orion, be careful. Watch your buddy's back, and he will watch yours. May the spirits watch over all of you, and protect you in your work. We'll all be praying for you.
