Hoping he will be home soon
My husband Cpl. Barnes is a Marine and he is currently serving in Iraq for his 2nd tour. While he has been gone in the past 8 months we have had a beautiful son. He did get to come home after I had him for 2 weeks. We dont know when he will be home, but we are hoping that it will be soon!
