I recieved this in email from a dear friend of mine. Her husband is a retired Vietnam Vet and her son is in the Marines currently in Iraq.
She supports the war, as most of the military families do, but asks for prayers for all the soldiers and their families.

I know that most of you are keeping our troops in your prayers. Please continue to do so.
Our son's unit took another hit. There was one wounded, and another killed. Of the 23 men in the unit, only 16 now remain.
Please, also, remember the families of those fallen heroes. They too deserve our best.
Sleep in peace always, and please... hug or thank a veteran for that privilege.
