You have all my thoughts and prayers. My husband is in Iraq right now and I know how hard it is to have just one man you love over there, let alone two or your babies. I know how much I worry about our baby boy now and how much I worry about my husband over there, my prayers are with you for having two men that you love so dearly in harms way. Just know that they are all doing what they chose to do and that you will need the support of others, don't try to do it alone. Check in with your son's FRG, they can be an amazingly huge help in keeping you busy, involved and informed.

First I want to say thank you to your sons and your family. My husband was in the Marine Corp for 5 years and deployed several times throughout his enlistment. So I know the pain of seeing them getting on that bus! My prayers are with them and their safe return home. But something that may make you feel better, you can register them for solders angles at http://www.soldiersangels.org/ I know it gets hard to send care packages all the time but this site has a bunch of volunteers who "adopt" a member of the military and write them on a weekly basis and send care packages monthly! It’s a great site and gives our troops the boost they need :) Thanks again for all your sons do!

It is amazing what they are doing and obviously it will be very hard for you. My Mum is currently deployed overseas and I miss her so much. It doesn't help when she sends me emails telling me how a rocket landed 220M from where she is and killed 2 people. All the best, I will think of you

Absolutely! I have a younger brother in the Navy myself. He is posted in Japan, and hasn't been able to come home since bootcamp graduation in April 2007. With Korea pulling their recent nonsense with the bomb testing I am getting very scared for him.

My prayers are with you, just know in your heart that they are doing what they chose to do. As long as they are happy thats what matters I am sure it does not make it easier though.

Not only will I pray for your sons, but I would like to take a moment to thank them and yourself as well. It is because of these caring soldiers that we enjoy the freedoms that we have today. The families of these men and women give so much of themselves, just in supporting their soldiers and for being away from them.

So from the very deepest part of my heart - THANKS to you and your sons!

May they both come home safe and sound.

While this must be SO hard - you must be so proud of them too. I will include you and your boys in my prayers.
