My dad is a military chaplain, and he left two days ago for Iraq to minister to the soldiers. He'll be gone five months. We miss him already, but we're also very proud of him and don't have any doubts that he'll come safely home to us again. smile.gif

So I thought I'd make a thread for our beloved "dogs of the military" and see if there was anyone else who had a friend or family member in the military. If you do, or if you're simply someone who loves your country and supports the troops, welcome! Please tell us all about it and share your thoughts!

One thing though: This thread is NOT for arguing about the war or anything. If you don't agree with the war in Iraq or if you don't like what happens over there, that's okay. I respect that. But please either keep it to yourself or take it to the Debate District. I want this to be a place of support and encouragement, not heated arguments that'll end up going nowhere.

Okay? Are we cool with that? Good. smile.gif

And because we all love FMA, here's something cute I found. It's a US soldier and a little boy in Iraq playing video games. But look closely...

Notice the boy's right arm and left leg? wink.gif (Where's Winry when you need her?) biggrin.gif


Dear pain, it's been a long time.
Remember when you were holding me tight?
I would stay awake with you all night...

My brother is in the U.S. Coast Guard, and he's over seas in Bahrain, a little island off the Saudi Arabia side of the Persian Gulf. He should be coming home in June, just in time for our youngest sister's graduation. His wife is also in the Coast Guard, and she's training with the Canadian Coast Guard before she goes to Guantanamo Bay--thought, Obama's plans to shut down the facility might change her orders.

My brother-in-law is a retired Marine, but he still works with the Marines teaching seminars on computer networking, and other computer related things. He still travels to bases all over the world.

My cousin is in the Army, and currently in Iraq. He's a driver, and currently trained to be a field medic, too.
