(WDAY TV) -- Summer is the time for reunions, family pictures and celebrations. And for one local family, a "photo-shoot" tomorrow will be especially meaningful and patriotic.
Cynthia and Mike Schlosser not only serve in the military, but their three boys do as well.
The pictures tell an incredible story. Three brothers--Andy--Joe and Ben....all serving their country. And they have some pretty incredible role models. Major Mike Schlosser, a Sanford physician is in the Army Reserves. Lt. Col. Cynthia Schlosser, a nurse, is in the Army Reserves as well. To see their children go from well..children...to this....makes mom just a little proud.
Both Cynthia and Mike have been deployed during recent conflicts overseas. In fact Mike had retired briefly from the military before 9-11....then came 9-11. He signed up again...and As an ER Doc, he helped all who came into his trauma bays in Iraq and Afghanistan.
This weekend, all the boys will return home for a once in a lifetime picture....all wearing uniforms. All five who serve our country willingly for a snapshot look at a family that has made sacrifices over all these years."
Cynthia Schlosser says she plans on retiring from the Army Reserves in about two years.
