    If you are interested in e-mailing...the news station here in San Diego has started a program called "Help from The Homefront". They will e-mail your message out to one of the San Diego based ships currently deployed. I have heard of several pen-pal relationships starting up that way. If you are interested go to www.nbcsandiego.com and click on the "Help From the Homefront" icon.

    Thanks again for your support! Btw...I forward all the messages on this thread to my DH...he and the guys were excited about the positive support!

    My son is at tech school for the airforce right now. I am very worried about what will happen when he gets out. He will be 19 the end of this month, so young, as many of our military members are.

    My prayers are with all.

    You are all very welcome. I think that along with the other stressors in life, talking about what is going on with our loved ones is very important.

    May they be safe and all come home soon!

    I wrote to the email addy above and got a response. Of course they couldn't tell me anything about what ship they were on or anything but that's ok. It was a nice feeling to let them know that I support them and now they know it!

    I'm so glad you are getting a response Essarge!!!!

    I e-mailed my friend who is out in the "Big Blue" right now and hopefully you will be getting something from someone on his ship too!

    Have a great day all!

    Thank you all for your kind words. From an Army wife, with a husband on his way overseas, this touched me! I pray for all of our soldiers daily!

    My husband is a Marine and has been in the Persian Gulf since Jan. 9th. We have been able to email each other everyday until last Friday. On Saturday I received my acceptance letter into nursing school. It was really difficult to not be able to share my happiness with him. I don't know when I will be able to talk to him or receive an email from him.

    He is in a heavy guns platoon, so he will see a lot of action if this war happens, as it looks like it will. It's hard to be excited about my future when I worry about whether my husband will come back to me. We have two sons 3 and 7. It has been difficult for them also. They are used to him being gone a lot training, but they still always ask "When is Daddy coming home?". I can't answer them because I don't know the answer myself.

    Thanks for listening.

    Best wishes always.
