'Nathan misses his dad'
This photo is of Cpl. Daniel Stroud of the United States Marine Corps and his son Nathan who is now 16 months old. Cpl. Stroud deployed on April 10th on board the USS Bonhomme Richard and is currently serving in Iraq. He is due home sometime in November. Nathan misses his dad very much and every day he kisses this exact photo and talks to him. My husband is an avid CNN viewer and especially loves to watch Robin. This would make his day if he was viewed on her segment.
-- Lana Stroud of Anchorage, Alaska
