Two brothers serving in the U.S. Army have reunited with their family in Spokane, Wash., after serving in Iraq and Afghanistan.
Big brother Jordan Allen waited in Kuwait for two days to be able to fly home with his little brother -- Lt. Brooks Allen. They were able to attend an Allen family reunion this week in Spokane.
The two grew up playing football and also attended college together. Now both are U.S. Army Rangers and are able to stay in touch through frequent calls on a secret line.
"We have a secret line we talk on so we stay in touch quite a bit," Brooks said.
"We're really close, we're defiantly close see I out rank him and so I give him a hard time about that but really when it boils down to it- he's my younger brother we'd do anything for each other," Jordan said.
When their leave is over in two weeks, the brothers have been assigned to new duties in Germany and Alaska.
