All I can say is "Awwwww". What a nice entry you made to Beth and everyone waiting for you back home. As a close relative to you, it is with great admiration that I stand here with my family in Canada and watch your accomlishments in awe. I have never known someone your age who has contributed so much to his Country. Ever since I can remember you have always been doing "something" to help "someone". I know your family is extremely proud of you.
I can't say as I have ever known anyone personally who has been interviewed and photographed by any huge, well-known newspapers...that was a first for me. So cool.
I am glad Beth is such an understanding and compassionate wife, as I truly do not know how she has done all she has with you so far away. With our children being a mere week apart in age, I cannot even fathom the thought of not having my husband around for the most important years of their lives..the "firsts". I am glad you were able to keep comtact with Beth and Evan through means of internet and webcam as I think the separation would be utterly unbearable without.
As your time in Iraq runs short, I, like many other family members, can hardly contain ourselves knowing you are finally coming home. Soon I will remove that yellow ribbon from my tree and put my mind at ease. It has been a long journey as a by-stander, I can't imagine how long it has been on the homefront.

Beth, it is sad to hear of your school kids lack of respect. One only hopes our kids have more values than that as they grow.

Here's hoping the last lag of your journey runs smoothly and safely. We can't wait to see you soon. Take care Charlie Mike!

Love always,
Krista, Mark and Mason
