'We love and miss him bunches'


Matthew is on his 2nd tour, 1st was in Iraq at LSA Anaconda. Now he is in an undisclosed location in Kuwait. He is with 82 Airborne from From Ft. Bragg NC. We love and miss him bunches -- his family and friends.

For my 2 nephews who are both serving in IRAQ. BRAIN AND FRANK , WE ARE SO PROUD OF YOU BOTH. WHAT BRAVE YOUNG MEN YOU ARE. AND A HUGE THANK YOU TO ALL THE OTHERS THAT ARE SERVING OUR COUNTRY AND KEEPING US SAFE . BRIAN, YOU LITTLE ARE DOING GREAT .LOVE, AUNT CRICKETT
I wanted to thank those who paid anonymously for lunch for my USAF Son-in-law and his family in San Antonio Texas. They left a card thanking them for their service to this country. Our family has had USAF, Navy, Marine and Army members since WWI including myself! That thank you meant so much to us all. I have family members in Iraq and will have more as of January. We are so proud of them all. I am also proud of those who show their support like they did my family. They are true Americans and they are why we chose to serve.
Thank you! Ruth
