My sorority little sister (and bridesmaid)'s fiance is going to the Gulf on Friday. They're getting married October 2004. His name is Ron -- I don't know what division he's in. He drives tanks, though. Army.

danalin--I'm so sorry to read that.

I found pictures of my sister's husband on this site:

http://www.news.navy.mil/view_single.asp?id=5306

(on the left hand wall, second from right)

http://www.news.navy.mil/view_single.asp?id=3738

(standing on the right, giving a briefing)

I forwarded them to my sister and she was so excited, she hadn't seen them before. He's a Lt. Cmdr on the USS Truman--I'm not completely clear about what he does, but I know he's been flying every day as a wing command (?). He's not a pilot, but trained last year to accompany the flights as part of whatever department he heads.

We live several miles from Quantico, so we have many friends we've made over the years we think of every day who are over there right now or soon to be deployed.

Prayers for our friends, Peggy & Mike, whose son is an Army Ranger and on his way home (back to the States via Germany). He was hit with shrapnel earlier this week (his Mom says it may have happend on his 23rd birthday). Anyway, his name is Kris, and he's going to be OK - this is a young man I've known for 16 years. His younger brother is a medic with the same group. Thank God the Army has the injured call home themselves!

Kris and his brother have been home and back to Georgia. Both are fine and their parents are relieved to have them on US soil!

Still keeping you all in our thoughts and prayers over here.

We just received word that my friend's fiance's tank unit was moving into Iraq when there was a fatal accident. We don't yet have any word if Ron's OK...

Oh dear!

Prayers and pixie dust that he is ok. The waiting must be terribly hard.

Well, the accident happened on Monday and Ron's parents have not been called, so we're assuming it wasn't him.
Still sending my prayers to the family of the soldier who was killed....

Cpl Andrew J Sikora, USMC
C&E R&S Platoon
USS Iwo Jima

current location-unknown

We know that Marines from his ship have been sent to Iraq. No one has heard from him in more than a week so we can only assume he is currently in Iraq.

Lots of Prayers please.

And thank you for this thread.
