Has to share - phone ran at 0200 - not normally a good thing - BUT it was my son - tigger - caling from outside Fallujah to tell me he is in one piece and fine.

Says his platoon is in good shape- couple wounded, who were telling the docs they were fine and needed to stay with their guys.

Said he is "big time tired" and was heading for some shut-eye.

Thanks to all of you for your prayers - I cannot tell you how much I appreciate it.

Good news...I know how it must feel to not know. Can you imagine how it was for the Moms and Dads of the Vietnam era. It would be weeks if not months before any news came in. I am praying for you son's safe return. It will all be over soon.

Mom may God Keep and Blees your son and all his buddies as well as you. I am happy that he is doing well and ok. May he be safe back in your arms again soon. No matter what and no matter how old moms arms always felt good. The home cooking was not a bad benefit either
