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.

Absolutely, Claire. Prayers, well wishes, big {{}}, and a bigger THANK YOU. I bet he doesn't want to leave his buds, though. Tell him he did his time and it was more than enough.
Thanks for sharing, Claire.

He is back with his buds as we speak. It was a freak accident that got him, not an enemy action! But he still needs our good thoughts.

That was the same with my nephew, as I mentioned. Injuries are injuries, no matter how they happen, but I'm sure (being guys!) they would rather have a more gruesome, combat-related story to tell the grandkids than an accident! I'm praying that he, and everyone involved in this war, come home with no more injuries.
