Worst News Ever! For Me
I just got word today my husband will leave for Iraq this November. He'll be gone for 7 months. I understand I knew what could happen but I am so not ready! GOOD GOD! END THIS WAR ALREADY!

I'm sorry to hear that. I know how hard it is when a loved one is sent to war. My brother was in the Marines and was sent for 2 terms. All we could do is pray and have faith that they will come home safely. I will keep your husband and your family in my prayers as it is much needed during these times. Also, send carepackages while he is over there. If you need any ideas feel free to PM me, we used to send care packages to Iraq all the time. God bless you and your family.

Of course. If you ever need to talk feel free to PM me. Oh yeah like the 2 above said lots of letters and pictures-they love getting pictures! List of things for the care package: If you're sending food make sure it's something that won't rot or crumble as it will go through a lot of inspections before it gets to your husband. So send items like Beef Jerky, Powered drinks like gatorade or iced tea, candy (they love getting candy as all they eat are MRE's), baby wipes (lots), batteries, magazines, a CD player with Cd's of his choice,  Vitamins, Energy bars, slim jim's, *digging out the letters my brother used to send*, Granola bars, chocolate (yup, I do not know why because it could melt but we sent it anyway), box of cereal, Grahm Crackers, etc. I'll think of some more items he may need and let you know.

 That does suck so bad... I really feel for you.  I recently found out my best friend got orders for next march. Care packages are a really good idea, my mom sent tons to her husband and he really appreciated it. And letters, lots of letters. I freakin wish this dumb war ended a long time ago.

Sorry to hear that. With faith all is possible.  The only bad thing about this senseless war is that we are no where near it being over with.  In California alone there are a few bases that were deactivated over 10 years ago that are actually being worked on for reactivation as we speak.  I happen to work with the engineering firms that are contracted with the U.S. Government that are a part of this project.  We have already started the repaving of roads, renovating military housing, and barracks.  We got about another 5 years of this b.s.  Now that is scary. 

Just have faith in god. (whom ever that is to you)  I too have family in Falluja (did i spell that right?) at the moment and its the 3rd round for them. I feel your pain.  We all come from different backgrounds but we all have one thing in common and this is the love for our family.  We are no different when it comes to that.

.......Cherish today as if it were your last!

Re: Worst News Ever! For Me

It's the worst feeling ever besides loosing a loved one. I cried when my brother left to bootcamp, now imagine how much I cried when he left to Iraq?? The worst! But all one can do is pray and have faith that they will return home safely.
