What a wonderful thread!

My husband was AD Army for 10 and is now with the AZ National Guard.
E Co. 1/285th Avn. Bn.
Ft. Hood Texas for training on a new Apache attack helicopter, then off to the Middle East (probably Iraq or Afgan) until Januray of 08. Could be as far out as May of 08 though.

My thoughts go out to all of the other military members and their families on this board and everywhere!

Just found this wonderful thread. Over 400 members of our area National Guard was deployed including my nephew Major Corey Seats who had his second child on August 16. I know he arrived in Iraq last week. We had families who had more than one member deployed. One had the father and son and another had both son in laws. I understand they are to be locating IED's along the roadsides. We are all praying for their safe return in about a year.

God bless each and every one of our military and their families! You are all in my thoughts and prayers. This is a great thread! I am so thankful that I was able to IM with my 21 yr old son in Afghanistan tonight and he's hoping to be on a plane out of there later today after almost 6 months (he left right about Mother's Day). He's headed back to his "home" base in Anchorage, Alaska but hopes to have a stopover in the Minneapolis-St Paul airport about 3 hours from here on the way. Then if all goes well he'll be home around Christmas for leave and a trip to Disney in early January. Please send us pixie dust! And help me pray for his safe return. We're anticipating another 1 yr deployment somewhere after that but hoping for the best.

Here's his info:
SRA Garret Bushnell
United States Air Force, EOD (Explosive Ordnance Disposal)
Currently Operation Enduring Freedom, Afghanistan

Please add my grandson, Ronnie Supernault, to the list. He was just sent in October to Iraq. He just got married and has a new baby that was born just before he deployed. He is also with the units from Ft. Hood, Texas. This is a great site. Glad that I found it!!!

My husband is not over seas yet but he will. Please add him.

Thank you,

Christina

PS I'm not sure on all the information yet. He is Sargeant Stuart Kirksey of the United States Marines. He is in 0311, and his unit is from Montgomery AL. They will be leaving the us in July.

People, I do not mean to sound mean or anything like that but I really don't think that you should be putting your relatives' full name, rank, where their unit is from and what their travel dates are on-line. Some have given way too much info and although this is a Disney Site, you cannot stop anyone from reading it. My son was in Somalia(sp) for 2 yrs. and one of his buddy's mother put his address out on the internet for others to send mail to him. She ended up having Military Police at her door and her son was shipped to another place in the dead of night!!!

I did 3 yrs in the Navy during Viet Nam and we were constantly reminded NOT to give any information to anyone about anything!!!!! It could cost a service man, his unit and many others their life!

I understand how you are feeling, as I have been down this road many times with my son and now my grandson. Please be very very careful what you put out in public.
