Happy Mother's Day from Baghdad
This is Sgt Marcus Randolph, he is a dear friend of our family. My husband and he served in Iraq once together, and now Marcus is serving his third tour. I am a VERY new mother and Marcus sent this photo to me along with my first Mother's Day card all the way from Baghdad, Iraq. He has the biggest heart. He looks big and tough, but he's really just a big teddy bear and a wonderful man! :)
