Good Wishes and Prayers Needed

A young friend of mine was wounded in Iraq last night. I think he is going to be OK, but please be thinking of him.

Aww, Claire, I'm sorry to hear about your friend. I'll keep him in my thoughts. Will he be sent back to the states to recover?

He has my prayers as well. My nephew served twice in Iraq, until he was injured too badly and had to come home (arm torn off in Humvee accident--he's fine now and has full, I believe, use of his arm). Let your friend know that we are proud of him for serving, and we hope he can come home safely, very soon.
