I have brothers and we are close. But sometimes a brother-in-arms can be closer. At a recent reunion of one of my infantry battalions I was treated with such dignity and heart that it precipitated great healing. The chief organizer grabbed my hand and with a strong man-hug whispered in my ear: "welcome home brother." As much as I love my brothers they could not offer the kind of peace that occurred in that moment.
