The 4th soldier who was injured in last Saturday's attack which initially 3 soldiers from our bn, he died last night surrounded by family. We don't have any details other than later today we should know when the memorial service is.

My stomach is physically hurting right now. I can guess Chad knows but I'm not sure. He went to bed last night about the time he would have died, so unless they woke the soldiers up they wouldn't have found out until this morning. Please please be in prayer for the soldiers over there. We have a little more than 3 months left and honestly this may be the most stressful time for close to coming home, but yet realities of this war are right in front of their face, not like it never is...but when you lose soldiers I think it's there even more so.

Please be in prayer also for the wives who are struggling. It's hard there's no doubt, but there are wives who take this even harder than others. Thank you every single one for your love, compassion, and support throughout this deployment.

God bless

I have just started reading your journal & just wanted to say that I'm praying for the families of the soldiers.  And for your family as well.

Hi Christy,
I've been away from J-land for 2 weeks so I didn't know about the deaths of the soilders. I will be praying for everyone involved....I cannot imagine how horribly scary this must be for you, Chad & everyone. I'm so sorry that you are having to go through this stress and I'm so very glad that Chad is safe. He is in my prayers every single morning.

Pooh Hugs,
