My son, Marine Lance Corporal Andrew Ortiz is serving at Camp Ramadi in Iraq. He's been there for 2 months now, his first deployment. We love him, we miss him, we are ready for him to come home. We are just so proud of him.I would like him to be honored by y'all because we watch your show every morning and we'd love to see him there. It's great that you have a spot for our military in your program... it means a lot to the families, I promise it does! Thank you!
