Wanted: Some well-wishes for my son in Iraq.?

Our son is a Marine serving in Iraq, and has about a month left. He is horribly home sick and losing his motivation. I'd like to start sending him words of encouragement to help boost his moral. Thank you in advance for your positive comments, and to those who wish to leave negative ones, it's just a shame you live in this country....

Hey jarhead!!! I heard you was getting the short timer blues. Don't worry now your almost home. I lived in the gulf for 2 years from 1988-1990 on a white flagship while the Iranians and Iraqis were shooting at one another . We'd patrol the gulf which was full of floating mines and we didn't have a sonar just a pair of eyes connected to a good ole .50 cal. If your worried about being extended don't! worry accomplishes nothing but ulcers. If it happens it happens you will always have people to protect you that's why you're in a squad their your family there. Trust them to see you thru anything .Your still here they must have done something right. If you you want to confide in a fellow veteran I'm at woofdogmeow@yahoo.com e-mail me anytime SEMPER FI jarhead and stay sharp.

Good luck and god speed to your son. Give him an "oorah" and tell him to hang in there.

Yes, and everyone should send E-Mails, Cards, etc. The last month is tough in combat, perhaps tougher than the first 3 months. God bless you and him, and your doing the right thing.

I've been there too buddy. This thing doesn't last forever and soon it will be just a memory while you're sitting at home enjoying time with your family. You're doing it for a cause and you are a better person because of it. You have all the support in the world and you're almost DONE!!! Take care of yourself and your buddies...

He surely has my best wishes -Texas

Thank you Jason!

I cannot imagine how tough it must be to be there right now. Thoughts and prayers are with you all...hopefully you'll be home safely very soon.

Well, Hello Jason. Thanks so very much for doing what your are over there! I know it's been very hard, but you are doing a great job and only have a short time left. Hang in there, you'll make it! Wow, will everyone be happy to see you home! We are all very proud of you and your service to our country. God keep you safe and may your time left, pass swiftly. Just keep think about all the love and joy you will bring and receive when you get back! Thanks again, so very, very much!! K from MO

Jason. Our prayers for your safe return are with you. Patience and you will be amazed how soon this month is over. I know, I went thru the same thing in Southeast Asia.

i hope you and your squadron are all well, You should be coming home soon i know that my husbands advanced party leaves next month and the rest of his squad leaves in October so i feel for you and know how much you want to come home.. We have 2 little ones so i think it's going to be a bit harder for us, but know that there are tons of people who support every enlisted person even though it doesn't seem that way, and I'm proud to say I'm an American and be protected and sheltered from the the true harms of our world because people like you (and my hubby E-6) are willing to put yourselves in harms way for all of your safety thank you and be safe Your in Gods hands and I'm sure he has is troops (angels) looking out for you, Semper Fi..

I would like to thank your son for what he is doing for all of us. It must be terrible over there. I spoke with my father about a month ago about this war. He was in world war II and fought with Patton's army. This is what he said to me "I feel so sorry for those kids fighting in Iraq, because they don't know who they are fighting. During WWII, we wore uniforms, they wore uniforms and we knew who the enemy was" He was so right. My Dad passed away on July 28th. I miss him terribly. It must be so hard on you. Tell your son we are all pulling for him and praying for him. Those guys and girls are our heroes. I am praying for you too.

Hi im from the uk... my dad was in the forces so in a way know wot u going through ( he was a desert rat in the first gulf war) think they are so brave and shows that the soldiers are real men and doing this for their country and totally patriotic to their country.. ( rather than having no job etc and being lay about)
hell be home real soon and just think of the partys when he does!! let him know if ( sure u have done) how proud u all are and im sure thatl boost him a bit. hes lucky to have parents like u to be doing what u can to help him along this time in his life.... good luck and chin up to all of u!! take care!!

Hey Jason, stay tough over there. I know it's hard but you'll be home soon and you'll be a hero to loved ones and even strangers. Coming from two service members we know you have one of the most demanding jobs in the military.
So stay on your toes and come home safe to your parents. They obviously love you very much. We don't know you, but we're proud of you. Thanks Jason.

Hello Jason,

It is always welcomed news of one of our troops coming home ! Only 1 month to go ! 4 weeks ! You've served your

Not everybody can be a Marine !! lol ! Well... Jason...I send my thoughts and well wishes for the next month to pass speedily for you. I would like to extend to you my thanks for giving up a year or more of your life to do what you've been called to do,with honor and dignity, and in a month you can email me via this venue .... just to say Hi ...I'm back ! God Bless and keep you safe.... until later....good bye.
