War man!

our son Eric is in Iraq. Age 20 and serving YOU! Many do not believe that we as a nation belong in Iraq. Sometimes I agree, but on the whole, I do not. I find it ironic that we Americans, who have so much, are spoiled rotten, and do not want other nations to enjoy the fruits we take for granted... the right to vote, the right to voice your opinion, without fear, the right to assemble, free speech and on and on..
Eric is a fine young man, I wish more of our youth were like him.
Funny but we received an email from Eric and in it he said he is eating fantastic in Al Asad. Four great meals a day. And here's the kicker, he feels guilty about it. That's right, he feels guilty for eating well as a Marine.
They are putting him thru the many classes necessary to be careful in a foreign land, then he is of to Haditha.
Keep praying for him.
