Scrappin' Good Times Blog

My brother is currently serving in Afghanistan. On July 19th he and some of the members of the 1st Battalion, 17th Infantry Regiment, 5th Stryker Brigade, 2nd Infantry Division from Fort Lewis, Washington were deployed to southern Afghanistan. Earlier this week we found out that on August 18th he was on patrol and his unit was attacked. Although he escaped unharmed two other soldiers lost their lives. Again on this past Tuesday, we found out that 4 more soldiers lost their lives. Needless to say, it has been such an emotional week. I fear for my brother’s safety, I am praying constantly. Every time I hear breaking news come on the radio or TV (whether it is the passing of Ted Kennedy or the recent fires) my heart drops and I pray that it isn’t news from Afghanistan.

I read somewhere that there are 60,000 troops in Afghanistan!! Does anyone else out there have loved ones serving in Afghanistan? Will you share with me so I can pray for the safety of your loved one? Tell me about them share a story, send me a picture. Iā€™m praying for your loved ones even though I don’t know them personally.

This is my brother his wife and their baby.

My beautiful niece Zoe Brooke was born 3 days before he was deployed. I have started making cards for him so he can send to his wife. I know this has been difficult for her as well. Once I am done making some of my cards, I will post them. Take care for now šŸ™‚
