    Son's platoon hit in Iraq yesterday

    The war came to close for me today. My son's platoon was hit with 2 mines yesterday as they patroled the streets near Sadar City. He was just given this platoon 10 days ago. He has 3 MARP vehicles for his platoon. These are huge armor vehicles, v bottomed, with 50 cal guns atop of them. The front MARP shook off the first round, however the the next found the door seam, and the 15 pound porjectile pierced the vehicle. The driver lossed one of his legs and the right side PFC loss his life. I'm still numb, my son was in the right seat of the second MARP. Please continue to pray for the safety of our soldiers. And the families of the injured and killed. My heart is in my throat as I think of these two young men, and their families.
