Friends brother going to Afghanistan.

Yep, about a year left in the Navy and he has orders to goto Afghanistan for convoy duty. They say it's the worse job to have out there. Please keep him in your thoughts. He's a good guy.

He is right, it is. The job sucks and the roads are rotten. It could be worse though, he could be doing the same duty in Iraq.....

He'll be in my thoughts. I just saw my cousin that got back from two tours in Iraq, really good to see him. Now, my other cousin's new husband is off to Afghanistan. God Bless!

Thanks guys.

He's the only son, youngest out of three kids, dads pride, and from a divorced family. Kinda tough to send him on his way.

My wife and I will pray for him daily, as we do for all the troops. My cousin just got back, and was a Kiowa pilot there. My brother in law is either on his way, or is currently there on his second tour, having left right after Thanksgiving, Marine infantry.

God Bless all the troops. I'm so grateful for their service...
