I keep promising to post regularly, but life keeps getting in the way.
We had a tense few hours last week. Both of my husbands sons are in the military and both are in Afghanistan. I received a call from my step-daughter about an injury sustained by Ken (the oldest). For about 1 hour (I checked the phone log, cuz I thought it was 3-5) all we knew was that he had been injured and that he was OK. We finally got the details. His armoured vehicle ran over a mine. He got out right away but went back in for the other guys. He said he had to because they were just kids and needed his help. He had a concussion, neck and back injuries and he inhaled the chemical in the fire extinguisher.
His brother, Larry Jr, called a couple of days later. All he heard was that his brother was injured. His Dad explained the accident and the extent of Ken's injuries.
As a rule, I do not like to impose my political views on others and don't want theirs. This is not a forum for politics. I was not going to put this type of topic in my blog because I know that some are against us being in Afghanistan. The right or wrong is not what this is about.
This post is about 2 boys that I care about and the danger that they are in. Please take a moment (regardless of you opinion of the military) and pray that these 2 boys and all their companions in the service come home to their loved ones.
