In May, these two Newton Falls brothers met at Norfolk Naval Station in Virginia prior to their deployments. Dustin Sickle, left, is stationed at Little Rock Air Force Base in Arkansas and flew into this older brother Shawn Eaken's (right) home port before his deployment. Just four days later, Shawn was deployed for the third time aboard the USS Anzio. Dustin has been in the Air Force for over two years as a communication and navigation avionics technician. Shawn has been in the Navy for 10 years as an electronics technician. He is married to the former Elena Cook, also of Newton Falls, and is pictured holding his 4-year-old son, Zachary.
