Sgt. Mario Kerstell deployed to Afghanistan in July, 2011, with the 172nd Infantry Brigade. He returned on leave in February to see the birth of his first son, Grayson. Kassondra Kerstell has watched as her son has grown over four months, and in June 2012 the family was reunited during the homecoming at U.S. Army Garrison Grafenwoehr.
