My little (ok, not so little) baby brother is boarding this ship tonight at 9 p.m. for a 3-month long tour to do the type of Navy sailorish-type things that Navy sailors who play in the band do.  The USNS Comfort is (I believe) the second-largest hospital in the U.S.  This year they will be sailing throughout the Caribbean/South American region. Brandon will be ashore playing with his band in the various ports of call while the medical team provides treatment aboard ship.

Now, I have to admit. I am the one used to leaving everyone else behind to go get paid to do fun things in parts foreign. I am not so sure that I enjoy the sensation of being the one left!


Just think, B. When you get back, you’ll have a new little nephew to spoil.  Don’t forget all the presents for him 😀

 Bon voyage!
