    I found out a month ago that one of my closest friends will be going to Iraq for a year. She told me she'd be leaving in June. I called her today because I had this strange feeling that I had to call her. She told me she leaves Monday for Iraq. She's like a little sister to me, and I am extremely nervous.

    *sigh*

    I would like to see if we can do some sort of care package for the troops over seas. Ant, is your friend still over there?

    Don't be sad. Be proud. Good for her for wanting to serve her country. Much luck to her.

    Thank you everyone. I am extremely proud of Dana. She has done so much for this country already, like standing on the Brooklyn & Verrazano Bridges in that freezing cold weather, guarding Penn Station & LaGuardia Airport. She went off to drills every month and has truly been an inspiration.

    MArie, next time you talk to her, send her my best, and tell her to keep the faith.

    My cousin has just left the Army after 3 combat tours. 1 in Afganistan, and 2 in Iraq. With the Rangers.

    My hopes go with her, and the rest of our service men and women serving in combat zones.

    GodSpeed, and Hooah!

    Another friend of mine is leaving for training on Monday.

    Not sure where he's stationed, but he's Army.
