On October 7, 2019, Staff Sergeant Philip Gray left Fort Drum, New York for a 270-day deployment in Afghanistan.

Phillip’s wife, Kristen, told Good Morning America that before he left, he wanted to take his wife’s advice regarding their daughter, Rosie. So, he made sure that Rosie had something to look forward to on each day he’d have to spend away from her.
