A card from a soldier in Iraq, dated 29 April 09:
I wanted to thank you for the cards you sent to me. Knowing that we are not forgotten makes being here so much easier! I am married with a brand new baby boy. He was born in March. I will be able to see him in August for the first time. He is my first so I am very excited about seeing him. I am due home for good on or about the first of the year. Please keep us in your thoughts and prayers. We will handle things on our end. Keep in touch.
