    Son deploys tomorrow

    My son James, deploys tomorrow to Afghanistan. He is in the Army 82nd Airborne, stationed at Ft. Bragg.

    James was a late bloomer to join the Army last year at nearly 29 yrs old. He has made MANY sacrifices in his life to support our country. When he leaves tomorrow, he will be saying good bye to his wife, his 5 yr old daughter and his 3 1/2 month old daughter.

    Please keep James and his family in your prayers. This Mom is being a Mom and not dealing with it too well.

    I wish him luck. He and his Mom will be in my prayers.
    I would rather stand against the cannons of the wicked than against the prayers of the righteous.

    I know it's hard on you but he's doing a very noble thing. Rest assured that all of us are proud of him and appreciate this! I'll be thinking of you guys.

    Good luck to him, his family, and you. It's tough putting your life on hold for a year. Send him lots of care packages...we always did love getting socks, candy, and phone cards. I know, seems like kind of a weird list, but packages and letters help to break up the monotony.
    There are two sides to every issue: one side is right and the other is wrong, but the middle is always evil.

    I know the feeling well. My son has done 2 tours in Iraq, my son in law is 3 months into his first there. My son left his wife at Ft. Lewis, 1800 miles from home and the son in law left a wife and my 18 month old grandtwins at Ft. Carson, 500 miles from home. He will be fine, he is with his brothers in arms. They have trained together, they know each other, they will be together during this deployment, they will take care of each other.

    If you have the family with you, be strong together. If not, try to visit them from time to time. It will make all of you stronger and get you thru this. Every morning I manage to wake up, I say a little prayer for mine over there, I will add James to the list.
    A person is justified in the use of deadly force, if such person reasonably believes deadly force is necessary to prevent imminent death or great bodily harm to such person or a third person.

    Linda,

    Best of luck to you and yours. Support for the troops is nice, but oftentimes the wives (at least in my experience) are mostly left to fend for themselves. If I know my wife and kids are OK, it frees me up to do what I need to do.

    Just my $.02--and worth everything you paid for it.

    Cheers,
    Herk

    Linda,

    God bless you and your family.
    Sent one son overseas...not into a war zone.
    That was tough enough.

    My prayers are for you all.

    He's well trained, and ready to serve his country. May God watch over him and his comrades. Give the family strength to await his return. I thank him and his family for his service.
