My son is Sgt. Ryan Looper, US Army. He is on his second tour w/OIF. 505th Engineers. He was deployed 08/2005. He has a beautiful wife of 3 1/2 yrs. named Valarie who is holding down the home front. I'm praying for all troops serving and the families/friends that love them. We had the most magical family trip to WDW for Thanksgiving 2004 after he came home from Iraq and are already booked for Thanksgiving 2006 in faith that he will be home by then. He has told me that conditions for the soldiers are better than when he was there before. Please pray for him and our family as Christmas will be very difficult this year. It is the 1 yr. anniversary of my FIL's death and with our son away it will be sad for my MIL. Thanks for this thread and for your prayers.
I want to be just like because that pixie has attitude!

My wife's nephew, Specialist Michael Gilmer has been in Iraq for about 2 weeks and was one of the soliders injured in the mortor attack on Christmas morning. Thankfully nothing serious just a split head opening that was stitched. Please keep him and his family and fellow army buddies in your thoughts and prayers.

My dad is in the US Navy and I have to part with him for 3 months at a time. My uncle is leaving to go Iraq in Feb. and I honestly do not think that his wife and daughter can manage on their own. He will be gone for 13 months, and his daughter can't be away from him for more than a couple of days. I pray for both of these men, and both of their families, along with the entire armed forces and their families.

My cousin, Joe, is in the Marines and is in Iraq right now. I haven't heard an update as to where he is. I think he should be coming home in a few more months, and then he will be stationed in the US. His fiancee's baby shower is in a few weeks. I am just praying for a safe return so they can begin their life together.

One of my closest friends, Brooke Gunn, leaves in the next week. She has a one year old daughter so this is going to be hard on the whole family.

I have a prayer request...
Just a little background...
My DBIL is in the Army, and is currently serving in Iraq.
His wife, my DS, is in Germany with their 18-month-old daughter.
He is due to come "home" (back to Germany) to be with his wife and daughter in just a little over a month. They will probably remain in Germany for another year or two, and then he will be hopefully stationed back here in the States soon after that.
She called today because she got a call from him. He told her (what limited info he could give her over the phone) that he will be headed out first thing in the morning for what he called "the most dangerous mission he's been on yet". All he could really say was that it's in the same area where his unit lost three men last time they were there. And he told her that he has a really bad feeling about this, and that he wanted to call and talk to her and the baby before he goes. "Just in case", he said.
This really worries me because he's famous for downplaying his danger in order to keep my DS from worrying. So if he's expressing concern for his safety, then he must really be in danger.
I know that all of our service men and women need our prayers all the time, and I know we all just want our loved ones home safe and sound, but if you could just maybe put an extra little word for him and his unit, that would be great!
Thank you all!
Partner (Jen) , DD6 , and Me (Christal)

Got a letter from our Nephew. He's pretty home sick and says all they do is drill all day "except when they throw in some stupid **** just to annoy is". He's not done with boot camp until November so he's probably right "on schedule".
