Soldier enjoys family time as deployment looms

By Jennifer Emert - bio | email

ALBANY, GA (WALB) - A south Georgia soldier from the 4th Infantry 28th Battalion is getting some much needed R-and-R before returning to Iraq.

Specialist Randy Brown is home on a two week furlough. Brown is spending this time getting reacquainted with his 10-month-old daughter Alexis. She was only three months old when Brown left. 

"The last time all she wanted to do was eat and sleep and that was pretty much it change her diaper. Now running and chasing all the cats and stuff in her walker. It's just everything has changed with her," Brown said.

Brown won't be home again until the years' end and says by that time he expects his daughter will be walking.

Brown's wife Amanda wears her husbands dog tags close to her heart and tries to keep him updated via the web cam.
