Please keep my 2 children in your prays. They both left for Iraq today, both are in the Intelligence field. First time to Iraq for a 7 month tour.
I had to laugh because my son asked if it was ok to fly with his pocket knife,,,,yet,,,, The last issued item were their M16 Rifles, who cares about a pocket knife!
They fly today to Ireland, then onto Kuwait and land travel into Iraq.
They wanted to go to New Orleans (as some Marines from their base has) and help our people, but they have been sent to Iraq.
A lot of tears today, but they will be fine!

Edited to remove picture for security reasons, Thanks to everyone for thinking of my son and daughter as well as all our Servicemen and women!!!!!
