    Glad he's landed.

    My dh is scheduled to be back in the Continental U.S. in the next few days but we won't see him to Jan. 12th. It's been a long 15 months....and me and his 2 little girls miss him somethin terrible.

    Keep us updated on his progress.

    Prayers and hugs to you,

    My SIL in in Baghdad now too. Has been since September. My step daughter is completing necessary paperwork and testing to enlist. I think it is a good choice for her - she wants to work in the medical field....
