    Thank you (all of you military peoples!) for doing something so wonderful and something that I'm not sure I do have or would have the guts to do. May God bless you all and keep you all safe. Looking forward to hearing from you soon!

    Hugs and prayers.

    It's good to see a fellow Okie on the Allnurses board! Although not under these circumstances . I just got out of the Army in August, was stationed in Ft. Carson, CO. I know how you feel! You, as well as your family, will be in my prayers.


    Where are you attending school for nursing?

    You and all our military personnel will be in my prayers.
    I hope the worst does not happen.

    If it does as a nurse you will not be required to be near bomb sites. Please stay far away and encourage others not to "sight see".
    Depleted uranium, chemical, and biological agents may have been the targets. A Navy Nurse told me that is a possible cause of Gulf War syndrome.

    God bless us all.

    Thank you and all military. We live in the land of the free because of people who are willing to sacrifice their time and risk their lives so that we can choose what church to attend, what job to work at, and even what car we can drive and what road we want to travel. You and everyone will be in my thoughts and prayers daily.

    Godspeed, and safe return. See if you can make videos singing to your kids, or reading them stories, or even saying their bedtime prayers 'with' them. I think that would be a comfort for them.

    Keep in touch, and let us know if there's anything we can send in a care package for your unit, or any other unit.

    It will be all right. I remember that deployment feeling. It's pretty intense, because you'll be participating in history. You are part of a time when our country is really needing our military men and women to quiet a region. There is fear and there is the potential of death, but that is what makes it special and unique and a big honor to participate in. make us proud, i am proud of you!

    My husband got the news the other day that there's a good possibility that he'll be deployed. He is active duty Air Force. I always kind of assumed that his particular job would keep him here and that we would be immune to that stressor, but guess not now. We live in a military town and I've been sadly watching loved ones come and go for months now. I was kinda stunned at first when he told me, then I realized - I am (we as a couple are) no better to have to endure this than anyone else, we will all do what we have to do.
    I am quite proud of EVERYONE in the military, and thank you all for what you do for our country. God bless you.

    My thoughts and prayers for you to stay safe during your deployment and return home quickly. And for your children and husband to remain strong and proud until you are back in each others arms.

    Thank you to all those military and their families that sacrifice so that we may enjoy our freedoms.
