Specialist Brock Howland, who is currently stationed in Afghanistan, wasn't able to physically attend the birth of his son, but he did get to witness it, thanks to technology. Howland Skyped with his wife, Mary, throughout the entire delivery. He said of the experience, "Basically the whole time I could see Mary. I could see whomever was on the other side." And Mary said, "To have his support was the world. It felt like the other part of my heart was here."
