My husband went to Iraq. It was not a fun time at all. The troops are always in our prayers and I hope their families have a good holiday. Even during the hardest of times...we can always find something to be thankful for.....

My husband returned from Afghanistan about 8 months ago. We have them coming home every day. I have friends who serve for the US, others are Canadians, I have friends who are Brits and French and many more. It's tough for the families, or anyone who is touched by someone who serves and has been on the line.

There where days I was just barely making it, keeping my head above the water. I keep saying I don't worry, only because many don't understand how hard it is, when you have a loved one serving.

We can't help them physically, but we do help them when they call at home and hear a cheery hello and a love you.

We hang up and we pray that they return all home alive and without any serious injuries.

It is tough, for us all. I pray everyday and I am proud for them all. They are our heroes, they keep us safe.

When someone asks me how I do it, everyday it's a different answer, but I always close with, they are serving us the greatest service, because if they don't do what they are doing, we would not be safe. Never forget when you see a soldier, that little recognition goes a long way. At that I always say, there's always a great family behind our soldiers, never forget them in your prayers.

God bless them all.

My nephew(my niece 's husband returned from Iraq but he could not deal with life as he knew it, he was 25, he committed suicide in May, his wife found him hanging in their basement, he left behind a 2 yr ols son AJ and a widow 24. This really hit our family hard, I PRAY that the one;s who are returning home get help, they should get help before they leave the middle east and as soon as they get back home, there are so many suicides...1 to many
RIP Anthony

I totally agree jrzygirl. My husband was in Iraq when the war first started back in 2003, so maybe they have changed what they do with these guys (and girls) when they come home. He got de-briefed when he came home and they did some psychological questionnaires....but that was about it back then. Thankfully he was able to deal with it all right (even after losing some very close friends) but when you spend 24/7 on alert...it's hard to turn that off when you come home.

I am so sorry for your loss....I can't imagine having to deal with that. It's hard enough trying to get through each day while they are gone and then to have him come home safe and do that....so sad....

You are ALWAYS in my prayers....I know you are going through alot and I hope you can find some peace. Take Care of Yourself, Stacey :o)
