Please forgive my ignorance - I am coming to this board in an effort to learn and be respectful.
My FI's brother will be absent from our wedding due to miilitary service. I would like to acknowledge him in our program booklet, and want to be very careful to use the correct wording - which is completely unfamiliar to me.
I made a first attempt at the wording, below. If I've phrased anything incorrectly, could someone please let me know so I can correct it?
Thank you, everyone, for your help.
We thank Joe’s brother, John Doe, for his service to our country. John is a Chief Warrant Officer, 2nd Class, in the (state) National Guard, and is currently stationed at (xxx) in training for deployment to (xxx).
