'Sumayya misses her father'


My husband SGT. Michael Seevers is enlisted in the U.S. Army serving in Northern Iraq under Task Force Odin. Mike is a generator mechanic and he has been deployed for seven months. We have a soon to be 1-year old daughter name Sumayya who misses her father dearly. He talks to her regularly on the phone while I display pictures of him. I am proud of my husband's character and diligence. I can't wait for him to come home.

-- Dionne Seevers of Fort Gordon, Georgia
