Lost 2 good friends during recent conflict...3 wounded...one of the dead was married w/3 wonderful crib lizards...me, as I told FC, I'm fine...I guess Satan is watching over me...(kidding...kidding...)...not a scratch...go figure...

I truly believe its all worth it...also...not sure anyone heard about it, but I also lost a friend in Afghanistan (Helo crash)...lucky to attend the Purple Heart ceremony of one of the wounded (Afghanistan...training mission on Ruski Helo, took fire whilst landing...).

I may be headed back to TSTAN to hunt down more TBAN...we'll see...working with some very special men...

Anyway...just want to let everyone know there are true heros out there sacrificing A LOT so that you may live free and (hopefully) without fear...

Back for a while...I love you all!


Also I heard the voice of the Lord saying who shall I send, and who will go for us? Then said I, here am I, send me...

The real test comes when all strength has fled, and men must produce victory on will alone...

Hey DA, real glad to hear from you smile I got a nephew over there, spec ops with the marines. He was in the crew who rescued lynch. S Sgt named Elton Richard, look him up and say hello if you happen to be around him. Longshot, I know, but you'd probably like him smile

Sorry to hear about your friends. frown We are forever in their and their family's debts. You guys really make us proud, and you remain in my prayers. I'll tell FC you've been around. She'd love you know you are doing well smile

Thanks Allen, much appreciated. Tell your nephew great work on the Lynch rescue...I know a couple participants but wasn't in on it.

My thoughts and prayers also for the families of your friends. Very happy to know that there's been a hedge of protection around you.

When I don't measure up to much in this life, I'm a treasure in the arms of Christ.
