'Playing GI Joe'

This picture is of my husband SSG Dionicio Zarrabal playing GI Joe in Baghdad, Iraq, with the 2-16 Rangers of Fort Riley,Kansas. Our 2 children and I love and miss him very much. We will be celebrating 10 years of marriage upon his return in May 2008.

Hi Robin! My mom, dad, and I are big fans of your show. I'm spending my husbands deployment with them so we watch you every morning together. My mom has been bugging me about doing this so here it is. We hope to see my husband on your salute to the troops segment very soon. Best regards... The Zarrabal Family
