'Hurry home safely'


My son Gavin, who is 22, has been in Iraq since September 2007. This is a picture of some of the guys in the Navy Riverine Squadron Two. My son is the one on the left, second from the top. I just want to say, we are so proud of him and miss him very much. Hurry home safely everyone and Merry Christmas.

-- Linda Mitchell of West Richland, Washington
