In honor of Allan and David Bonnifield, Army National Guard
Hometown: New Ulm
(Submitted August 26, 2008 by Kathy Bonnifield)

To my brothers, Allan and David, who are both in the National Guard and who have both been deployed twice since September 11, 2001.  Allan, I will never forget driving you back to the airport in November 2006, as your leave was ending.--We talked of the results from the previous day’s elections.  David sat next to you, remembering his time in Iraq.  I watched the sunrise when we pulled up to the airport and did my best not to cry when David hugged you good-bye. It was so rare to see you both together….I will vote this year in celebration that you are both here.
