Too many Cubs in Iraq

Cubs in Iraq? Just got word that one of my sons will be returning to Iraq next month. :( :( :( As a Marine he is proud to serve and is looking forward to saving alot of money while there. He will be there for a year and will miss all the fun rebuilding the two 49's. Maybe he and Herb Ramsey can hook up and talk Cubs. We can only pray!!!

At times like this the best tool in my knees.

Donny, our thoughts and prayers go with him. Tell him we're proud of him!

My son just got back from Iraq after 11 months. Between 9/11 and the latest he's been gone 22 months. He saved all his leave so he was able to get back a month sooner. He also mentioned he was glad he didn't take any leave. He said most who took leave had a hard time adjusting when they had to return. Not seeing him for so long was hard on us but probably better for him. Tell your son we are all proud of him and our flag flies every day. Also tell him not to take any wooden nickels.
