Re: OT- my daughter and Wallace./and Son from Iraq..

Wonderful to hear your son will be returning home next week. to stay?, or just a break?
My nephew Sam has been having a rough go of it there. A broken excerpt:
"...this has been a fairly hard couple of days for me. A few days ago there was an attack on one of our platoons and we lost a guy due to sniper fire. While responding, my truck was hit by an IED. No real damage to my truck... I've been friends with this guy since basic. So, yeah it's been pretty hard. ... These ... insurgents are getting more and more brave. I've been in a couple of fire fights the last few days, yeah we've killed the ..., but still we shouldn't have to. I really don't know what else to say right now. ..., but right now I'm just confused I guess is the best way to put it. ..."
The young man who died was 23 from CA. He was to have been in Sam's wedding. They were that close.

Subject: [CHAT] OT- my daughter and Wallace./and Son from Iraq..

Thank you all for the kind e-mails this week regarding my daughter and
Wallace. Ceres asked how old my daughter is. She is 18 years old. This
happened on Monday and she is STILL in a funk and cries at the drop of a
hat. I feel so bad for her. The other puppy that we got at the same time
we got Wallace has been despondent and lost. It's hard to bounce back
from something like that. Knowing my husband, he'll bring home some
other dog (which I asked him not to do - you can never replace a friend,
and we have four other dogs) but Wallace was his dog and he really loved
him. So...we trudge along still.

On a good note, my son will be returning from Iraq on Oct. 13th and I
will be flying out there to greet him. I am really looking forward to
that day.
