I Pledge Allegiance...My Brother Craig

My Brother Craig

I would like to dedicate my Memorial Day post to my younger brother Craig Alyn Updegrove. He is my only sibling and the only person left in my immediate family.

In 1983 my brother Craig joined the Army and became an Airborne Ranger. He was involved in the Grenada invasion called called Operation Urgent Fury.

While in the army he was injured and diagnosed with Intervertebral Disc Syndrome. He was sent to an army hospital.

My brother is a Disabled American Veteran. He is also my best friend. I am very, very proud of him. This Memorial Day I honor my Brother, my Grandfather and all the brave men and women who fought and still fight for our country.

God Bless America!
