..........my little brother that is.  We had been told that he would be going to Iraq in April/May, but he was told that it wasn't definite.  So after last nights presidential address, it's pretty clear that Iraq is not the case.  I wasn't happy about him going there, but I figured it was the lesser of 2 evils.  Afghanistan...... man, this really sucks.  I just don't have a good feeling about this, my stomach has been in knots.  I was actually hoping that we would be pulling out & he wouldn't have to go anywhere.... wishful thinking I suppose.  I'm really hoping he gets down here for the holidays, because I'm not sure if we'll see him before he leaves otherwise.  It'll take a small miracle to get myself & the kids back to NY before June.

You might be wrong on that!!! --  My newphew got his orders two weeks ago, they are sending him and a bunch more to IRAQ.....  -- My newphew has been shipped over to afghanistan 2 times... this time to Iraq....  JUST FYI.. You really don't know where they'll send him unless he's told you....

OMG... Na, Im so sorry :(  Sending you lots of hugs & prayers (for Kyle too).  I hate that Obama said he'd start pulling those men & women out of there & then does this.  I know it wasnt going to be something that happened over night, but come on already... anyway, Im not getting into politics on here, someone might eat me alive... lol... I hope that he gets down there before he leaves. If you need to talk, call me.. Im usually here--Miss & Love you guys!
