'Can't wait to see you'
I want to say that I miss my husband Chris very much. He is serving in Iraq as a cpl in the Marines. We just got married on August 4 and he was shipped out on August 14. We miss him very much. Our baby son is growing and will have his first birthday on December 4th. We are so proud of Chris. Can't wait to see you. Be safe. We love you.
