I'd like for you to meet my cousin Eddie Mlavsky and his wife Samantha and their son David. Both Eddie and Samantha serve in the US Army and Eddie is a SGT. Just 2 weeks ago Eddie was deployed to Bishkek, Kyrgyzstan for the next 9 months. Eddie will be missing his son's very first Christmas so he can keep our country safe. Eddie grew up here on the suncoast until his father, David, was killed in a car accident in 2002 and at that time he moved to St. Pete with his mother. His step-mother, Kerry and little sister, Jessica still live here in Sarasota with the rest of our family. We love Eddie and are so proud of the man he has become.
