Forging the Warrior Spirit

At a lonely post somewhere, soldiers are watching.
They wait for the storm that they are trained to battle
The storm they surely hope never comes.
The night encroaching,
they are our final vestige of democracy.
They will sacrifice their comfort, their needs,
and their very lives,
for love of our great nation.
They are ready, tense, hard, and confident in duty and task.
They are spouses,
They are siblings,
They are parents,
They are friends,
They are timeless,
They are warriors.

Mike was supposed to arrive home in time for the birth of his first child, but Emma decided to surprise him and arrive a little early to be there to greet him.  She arrived at 3 AM February 21, weighing in at 6.9 pounds and 19 inches 'tall.'  She and mom, Heather, were very happy to see Mike who will be home for a few days to get acquainted with his new daugher.

Notice how Emma seems to be reaching out for her dad's hand.  Cute!

Mike is currently serving with the 1-502 Brigade, B Company.  The Company works with Iraqi military and law enforcement.

Mike's mom has requested prayer for the safety of Mike and his company who have had some close calls in the dangerous area where they are stationed in Iraq.  Please remember Mike and all of our brave armed forces personnel as they stand in front of us in very dangerous situations.

Update on Mike.  He was able to come home in time for Thanksgiving 2008.  He is stationed now at Fort Campbell, Kentucky.  His family is most thankful to have him back in the states!

Waiting for an update on Mike and family.  This information is a few years old now.
