    My friend's son is in Afganistan, he got deployed maybe a month or two ago. And up until now, so far so good. She even got a call from him on Christmas which made her entire day. Well, right now, my heart aches for her. She got a call from his unit saying he had been in an accident. A wall fell on him. And as of that call yesterday, he was still alive. However, she did not receive any word on his condition and has not heard back from anyone in 16 hours from the initial call. Please pray for Shawna and her son Zach.

    Here is a picture of Zach. Upon further facebook investigation... He has a broken leg. But they are not sure if he will be sent home or not. I'm going to go over to her house today, and if I find anything else out I'll let you guys know.

    Praying for him and his unit. It's every military parent's nightmare...the call saying they are injured. But worse is the knock at the door. [​IMG]

    Thank you Lord that you returned my daughter to me from Iraq safe and sound this year!!

    Thanks for the prayers for Shawna and Zach. My friend Shawna had gotten the official call from his unit today. His leg is NOT broken. And he is being returned to his unit tomorrow.

    She had gotten a call from someone who had spoken to his father, and somewhere some confusion set in and wrong information was passed along. Zach is alive and well. Nothing broken, just some nice bruises. And he is being returned to his unit in the morning.

    Thank you for your prayers.

    Awesome news! I hope he gets through the rest of his tour without injury and gets to come home safe and sound!
