Semper Fi

My Marine friend is safe :) We got word that his batallion was pulled out of Iraq and is in a "safe place." (my post last month)

He should be back in the USA within the next few weeks for debriefing and psychological testing and sent home by the time I fly out to my alma mater for Homecoming! Hopefully I'll get to see him!

I said a huge "thank you" prayer to the big man upstairs. I thanked God for watching over him and keeping him alive while many of his friends died all around him. His batallion saw a lot of action and firefights and suffered heavy casualties. He was injured but is alright. They are all heroes to me and I want to thank all of you out there for your kind words when I've freaked out about his safety.
