Hi, it’s Ryan. I’m deployed to Al Udeid Air Base, Qatar. I just wanted to see how the family was doing. I’ve been deployed 8 months now and couldn’t remeber your e-mail address. I do hope this e-mail finds you. We should be returning to MT in the next 30 days, then I’ll be heading back to Ohio to pick up the family. I wanted to stop in, say hi and see how everyone is doing. Please send your e-mail and let me know how Mike’s been. Thanks and best wishes,
