    Jamie is in Kansas City right now and they denied his request for law enforcement exemption. They are going to deploy him to either Iraq or Afghanistan in Nov. Im devastated.

    MY difficult child 1 WANTS to go, and now they say they may not send him at all, and your Jamie is being sent twice? Tell Jamie to give them my difficult child's name...this is crazy.

    Awww...Janet. I can only imagine your fear, and possibly Jamie's.

    Just know that you have thousands of cyber friends who will be thinking and praying for him.

    Love you, dear.

    Oh, Janet. I'm so sorry. It just doesn't seem right. Perhaps with the coming change in administration, things will resolve over there more quickly (fingers crossed).

    A gentle hug to you, hon.

    I am so sorry. My biggest fear is that pcdaughter will be deployed when she finishes her training.

    I keep trying to quiet this deep dark nightmare that I have had ever since he first enlisted. It has to do with this dark sedan pulling into my driveway and two men in dress blues getting out. I never talk about that nightmare to anyone and I keep telling myself its just from watching too much tv. I also keep telling myself we have only lost one member of my family to combat...and thats not bad considering how many have served. My dad and two of his brothers were in WWII, my moms older brother was a lifer in the Marines...served in WWII, Korea and other uprisings. The only one who died was Tonys uncle who was a Captain in the Marines in Vietnam. Jamie has a cousin who has been to Iraq early on and came back just fine. She was in communications. h I almost forgot my grandfather was in WWI.

    Now if my brain will just stop having those nightmares...sigh. I did call my Dad and his response was similar to mine. He remarked that he just didnt want to live to have survived WWII and then have something happen to Jamie now...

    Janet, this sounds strange but I truly have faith that Jaime will come home in one piece and not in a box. He will not have an easy time but he will recover. I don't know why I feel this way but I do. I don't have this kind of feeling often but I've been right every time -- good and bad.
