    Dont really know where to begin with this. We finally heard from our son today from Iraq. His unit was under a mortor atttack earlier this week. Thankfully he was not hurt much. Two of his friends were injured but somehow the shell that landed right behind my son didnt go off. It sprayed alot of rocks that left welts on his back but otherwise he was unhurt. I told him God would protect him. My prayers and all the family and friends who pray for him daily have been heard. He is safe for now and the best part he is being transferred tomorrow. I am not sure fwhere but heres praying its alitlle safer there. The news media have decided that there is no more war in Iraq. But I hope people realize these men and women are still in harms way over there. Please pray for all the men and women deployed and serving in both IRAQ and AFGANASTAN. Without our prayers for their safety they may not complete their mission and come home safe.

    God Bless your son for serving. I am married to an Iraq vet who lost his left eye. They all deserve so much more than what the government is giving them.
