This is my husband, SGT Marc Griffin. His 30th birthday is this Sunday, Sept. 30. In this picture he is behind a 240 and on a mission somewhere close to Muquadiyah, Iraq. He is with 6/9 Cavalry -Charlie Troop in the 1st Cav Division stationed out of Fort Hood. This is his second tour in Iraq and hopefully he will be home by Christmas. He has been there since Oct. 2, 2006. I am hoping that Robin can share his photo along with well wishes for his big birthday. I love him very much and look forward to his return!
