Prayer Request

Life is not fair   today i found out one of my co-workers is headed back to serve in iraq   he's a marine reservist and served on the front line when the war first started   he lived and returned home as did 4 other co-workers who served in iraq also   he's a young guy, married with one 3yr old daughter and his wife is expecting twins this october   he goes back to active duty the 16th of this month and leaves for iraq the first week of june  he'll be gone 8months to a year   i'm not catholic, but i bought him a St Christopher's pendant to carry him through   he is catholic  God is with our troops and they all need protection   i request we all say a prayer for him , his family and all our troops   i'm lighting a candle every night until he returns home   he will be in my prayers too...with this, i'll be looking at the daily news regarding iraq again until i know he's safe   i look now, but not daily   and sometimes i need a break from it too   anyways, i'll know soon exactly where he is in iraq and can look specifically for news regarding that particular area   May God bring all our soldiers home, preferably safe and sound....God bless!

It's a little known fact about this war, how many people have to return for second, even third deployments. I have a friend in Iowa who is trying to retire after serving 20 years in the Guard....but they are not letting him. He has served one tour in Iraq and has been warned there may be another. I will send a few extra prayers up for your friends..........
