Ks, you have said it so well. Each day not knowing, not hearing from him is a heart ache only a mother can know. Keep your faith, trust God will get us all there to greet them and hold them in our arms....and, yes like you said, take that breath. We wil be there soon. Just hang in there.

The fro doesn't have word.   This is going to be hell. all we can do is sit and wait and hope that we get word in time to get down there and get a place.   We all need to be there homecoming is so wonderful.  To see your Marine, your child, to be able to hold him and know that everything is fine now.  A Mother could finally take that breath that she waited so long for.

Sandyr-------I remember you well thank you for all your help.   I e-mailed the fro.   waiting to hear back.    e-marine site has no information but did make it clear there will be no word until the week or few days.   I hope that is not the case.  I would like sometime to get ready to get down there.   2nd son in.   I 1st time went with ease.   2nd deployment was not so easy to get information I understand why.  now 4yrs later and I am pulling teeth.   It's all good.
