We just got off our knees thanking God.....Recieved that long awaited phone call at 1:08pm.....We are still shaking and crying for joy...

At 1:05 am this morning...Our Son Chris and the last elements of the 2nd Inf., 2nd Brigade Combat Team from Ar Ramadi, Al Anbar provence crossed over the border into Kuwait to begin De-Mob and the long journey home....Almighty God..Thank You..2 sons coming home in 2 years....Our hearts are too full to describe it...Wish I had walking Jacks way with words........
It is so hard...so very hard to feel total joy on one hand and very, very deep sorrow on the other...I don't know how I feel.. i'm just so thankful and so sad too....Guess We will just keep praying and praying....
The 2nd BCT recieved one of the highest casualty rates of them all.....over 80 brave souls and many more wounded....

I need to pray a lot and ask God to help me understand how I feel......So many other familys will never know the joy we have now....so many....,

We want to Thank You to all of the 2coolers and their familys who supported them with Prayer and good wishes....
could someone tell Zac for us, Please? and tell him Chris earned the right to wear a 2nd Marine Div. patch for his part in Combat support to that group..I think he would like hearing that....he, along with many others here have been so supportive to us behind the scenes.

God Blessings to the "IronHorse Soldiers" of the 2nd BCT., their familys and friends....
May God protect and watch over those who still serve in harms way.....
So many feelings I'm trying to get out now...but I don't know how, so I'll just go hug Robs.....and keep praying...and giving thanks...

AMEN! Thankful your son is on the way home! My next door neighbor just got home 3 weeks ago from an 8 month tour. His baby was born 3 weeks before he left. He is a combat surgeon dude that flies in to combat / heavy fire situations to evac out and treat severely wounded troops in the field. The guy has seen alot and done 2 tours already. I personally want to salute you and your family and thank you all for their service!

My nephew is active duty airforce and coming home this Friday where we are promptly headed for Rockport to do some heavy R&R!

I hope I never have to feel the way you have been feeling. I do not know if I would be strong enought to handle it. God Bless your brave sons for doing what they do. And I am so happy that they will both be home.
