My brother

by Lidia Madrid

I wanted to talk to you about my brother. Maybe you might meet him one day. My brother was a former Marine. Or should I say, is a Marine. Once a Marine, always a Marine. During combat he lost many of his friends. One of the many reasons he doesn’t talk about his time in duty. I realize my brother has grown from his experience. He’s persevered so much since he was 5 when he came to this country with our mom. He didn’t have much growing up, which explains why he’s working hard so my niece has everything. He went to school to be the first to go to college. He is my idol because I hope one day I can accomplish what he has.
