    deployment

    We knew that it would be coming sooner or later. My son's unit command has received their deployment orders. They will go to 29 palms in Dec., and will be in Iraq by March. The baby is due Sept. 4th. (Provided that it is his) he will be leaving his first child before it is 3 months old to go serve. Individual orders are expected to arrive by June.

    My husband and I where stationed in 29 Palms for 2 years- my husband swears he would rather be in Iraq then 29 stumps! I still feel for you, my husband deployed twice- the second time, our daughter was only 5 weeks old! I will definatly keep him in my prayers!

    We can only hope they have begun to settle down over there by then.

    My thoughts will be with him. You let us know when he can start getting packages from home... we'll keep his spirits up!

    I don't think you realize how large your extended family is. Your son's a Marine. No man is more honorable. No organization is more supportive. His brothers all have families in your situation. They will help you just as you will help them. Semper fi.

    I do realize it, Acc. I am a member of Marine Moms Online also. Somehow there is just never enough "extended" though. Know what I mean?

    rkdian please convey my sincere thanks to your son for having the fortitude to serve our Country during these troubled times. Take comfort in knowing that he now has many "Brothers" who truly care about him and will do what is needed to support him.

    God bless and good thoughts being sent to you. I have always said that Mom's have the toughest job on earth.
