He was home for Christmas this year. He said this was the best Christmas ever. When I was talking to him last night (trying not to cry)... I'll pray for a safe trip - and almost said home but Iraq is not home. He's been in Iraq 5 years. It's his choice - it's his job.
He knew what I was going to ask before I even said it ... He answered "When God finds me something else to do." He left very early this morning. For those of us he bravely leaves behind, we miss him. He is our Hero.
