Joe Revier is a Marine from Howell currently serving our country in Afghanistan. Today is his 21st birthday, and you can help him celebrate.

A coworker alerted me to this story, and it's really an easy way to help a hometown hero.

Want to help? Visit THIS Facebook page, that Joe's family friend set up. All you have to do is to post a picture of yourself raising a glass to Joe.

It's a small way to show your gratitude for all our troops do, and to let one Marine know that while he may be missing a milestone birthday at home, his service is tremendously appreciated and we are all celebrating with him in spirit.

Cheers, Joe...Happy Birthday, and THANK YOU.
