When 1st Lt. Rosanna Vasquez Brown stepped off a plane at Fort Campbell, Ky., Nov. 20, a few days before Thanksgiving, she was greeted and hugged by her whole family -- their first reunion since 9/11. Here, she hugs her daughter Elisa, as her husband, Master Sgt. Mark Brown smiles after a welcome home ceremony at Campbell Army Airfield. Rosanna, stationed at Fort Campbell, is currently serving in Iraq with the 101st Airborne Division as a physician assistant in the Baghdad area. She also is a treatment platoon leader for a group of 25 Soldiers. Rosanna has been approved for a Bronze Star Medal. Mark served two tours in Iraqi and one combat tour in Panama in 1989.
