I wish the Marines werenít going in.
Marines arenít made, theyíre exposed.

A Marine . . .

They donít know how to back up,
let alone back off,
particularly when other Marines
are in harmís way.

They would rather die than knowingly leave
one of their own behind.

Thereís going to be a lot of casualties.

I wish the Marines werenít going in.

If anyone is up to the task at hand, it is the Marines.

I'll mention your nephew, Karen, in church today when we pray about the situation. (((HUGS)))

Let's keep them in our prayers for their safety and for a bloodless surrender by the insurgents, and if that doesn't happen, a speedy victory against the insurgents with minimal casualties on both sides.

Denise?

His name is Nick Hood.

I'd very much appreciate it if you keep him in your prayer circle.



thank you

Thanks Karen, and you're welcome. I was just about to email you for his name. We'll certainly keep Nick in our prayers. I'll put him and the others on the prayer request list as well.
