Staff Sgt. Richard Abrue and Staff Sgt. Gabriela Abrue, spouses and fellow Soldiers of the 143d Expeditionary Sustainment Command, exchange cards on Valentine's Day before their temporary separation. Gabriela, a noncommissioned officer in support operations, left Feb. 14 with the advance party of the 143d ESC, which has been dispatched to Afghanistan to support the buildup there. Richard, an NCO in the intelligence section, is scheduled to leave with the main body later this month.
