Missing Soldiers

I want to say before I post this link, that Chad is ok. I talked to him on the phone this morning and the link about the missing soldiers, this happened last night. Chad's doing good. He just got back. He had to make a run up to another camp. This camp has 2 pools, one indoor and one outdoor. It has Pizza Hut, Subway, Baskin Robbins, and Popeyes, I believe there's also BK. This time around he said he treated himself to a footlong sub, and they only charge them $2.99! I already like Subway in general for their food (well in the states, over here in Germany not so impressed with some of the  meat) anyways....I am just really happy with this company because it's obvious they're not making a profit when they only charge 2.99 for a foot long sub! I know Chad, he loaded up with veggies too on his sandwich. So...go Subway! :) It'd be nice if they had a few more luxuries where he's at, but I don't see that happening. It's a crazy area he's in. His base camp is located in the most dangerous city in Iraq currently. They're not the only camp in this city. They're camp's gotten about 1500 new soldiers though. I don't think they have internet hooked up in his room yet, if so he's not online right now! He did get online this morning after we got cut off on the phone, but I wasn't signed on :(

He sounded good though. I could hear a smile in his voice and that always makes me happy. He talked to the boys. Our little one is really into saying "I love Daddy" "I love cookie monster" (hey it's cute!) but he talks "to" Daddy a lot when he see's his picture!

Ok, so here's the article. I ask that you pray for the soldier who's been missing since April 2005, PFC (Keith)  Matt Maupin, from Ohio. He's actually from a town not far from where Chad's family lives. Pray for the soldier who was murdered last night, when the other 2 soldiers were taken. Lets pray these soldiers are still alive, not being torchered and are able to either 1 escape or 2 be rescued (alive).

You know I always keep Chad and every other soldier in my heart and prayers! I just read the link that you posted and it truly made me sick to my stomach:( I pray for the missing soldiers, the one that was murdered, their fellow soldiers and of course to the families. I pray for steadfast vigilance in the search for the soldiers.

That other camp sounds very well stocked!  I'm sure they enjoy those extras.
That is so scary about the missing soldiers.  What a nightmare.

Not sure how I was signed in under a completely different name that I have never seen before.  Freaky weird, man.

Ah hah!  My babysitter was online and didn't sign herself out!  Busted!

will pray for those soldiers, Christy. Glad that you did get to talk with Chad and he is okay. Hats off to Subway for making a good sandwich for our military and not charging a lot for it.

Christy, I'm really relieved to hear that Chad is ok. I haven't been keeping up much with the news because at times I just have to take a break due to the depressing nature. I hate seeing this sort of thing though and pray for Chad and his unit and that they will remain safe. I'll also add the missing soldier to that.

Sometimes I just wish that time could pass quickly while others I don't ever want it to end!

BTW....GO SUBWAY!!! I love that place! Now I'll have to go there and get some food sometime this week...thanks for awakening the tastebuds!

Glad Chad is okay.  I know this has to be really stressful for you.  God will protect him.

I gotta thank you for asking everyone to pray for Matt Maupin . . . I always talk about him in my journal, his picture is hanging on my computer at work and rests in my bible at home. He was from my same town practically, a lot of the kids I know knew him even though he went to a different school.

I pray for the men like your husband daily! Take care,

Amanda :)
