BIL is going to Iraq.

i just wanted to ask everyone to say a prayer for my brother in law. he is a full bird colonel in the us army, and has been ordered to serve a year in iraq. he's a logistics and supply expert, and there's very few officers with his rank and expertise nowadays, so it will be at least a year in service over there.
if he survives, there's a good chance he'll be promoted to general, but that's a long way away right now. my sister is beside herself with sadness because it's christmas, and he left yesterday for fort carson, colorado before going over. but she's tough, being an army wife that has raised (almost by herself) four kids all over the world.
oh, just an fyi, his name is col. mike kriz.
thanks in advance for your prayers...

Bucky... Prayers have been said not only for your BIL but for your sister, the kids and for you. Keep us updated please.

I know we are doing a good thing over there but... I sure wish it were all over.

smiles, Trish

I don't 'pray' - but I believe in the power of strong thoughts - and so my thoughts are with your brother in law and all his family (including you) at this time.
