Re: OT/son coming home from Iraq

We just got an email from Sam earlier today. His camp was attacked http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/15212323/
The video explains more. They've been evacuated, but not sure where.

Subject: [CHAT] OT/son coming home from Iraq

Kitty, I am so sorry to hear about Sam's friend. That is just
heartbreaking. So far Neal has not lost any friends...he almost lost
one...but he pulled through and is stateside right now. My son has had
several IEDs hit the trucks in his platoon, but no casualties that he
has mentioned so far. Neal said the insurgents were getting worse too.
Very brazen and non-stop. I'm so glad he's coming home for awhile. He
has two years left to serve, so I'm sure he'll end up back over there
before it's all over. I hate that.

Zem, thanks for the e-mail about Brandi. She is doing better this
weekend. She said the hardest part was getting the sound of the puppy
screaming out of her head. She would wake up in a cold sweat and start
crying all over again. And then I would start crying when she talked
about it. It's hard to shut it out. Time heals, but sometimes not soon

Cathy, I'm so sorry about Jason. I know it takes time...and I feel this
way over my pets. I can't even imagine what it would be like to lose one
of my children. The families that lose loved ones in this stupid war
grieve so much. I grieve for them.

I've got to get outside and weed my gardens and get them ready for the
winter...I just haven't been real motivated that last year or two. My
gardens look pretty sad. I wish I could find somebody, like a high
school kid, who wanted to do some work like that for pay. But then I
worry about them pulling stuff that isn't a weed! Oh well....I'll do
what I can do, and if it doesn't all get done...well, so be it.
