NEWSFLASH


Dan will be leaving for Iraq on the 30th of this month. He'll be working for the MEF (Marine Expeditionary Force) and will be gone one year. The boys and I will be staying here in our home in Stafford, trying to keep life as normal as possible. We'll miss him a ton, but feel very confident that he will be safe and that we will be fine here as well.

Wow - that's big news for your family. Best wishes to Dan in his new adventures and to the rest of you holding things up on the home front. You're always welcome to come see us in Connecticut if you're in need of a jaunt and up for a road trip!

Wow, that's huge! I'm glad you're close to family. I have several friends with husbands who have been gone, and I don't know how they do it, but they do. We hope you'll all be blessed, and we'd love to see you if you want to just get out for a while. We have plenty of room at our house, and it isn't that far away! Take care.
