Happy Thanksgiving!

My prayers are with the US Marines in Iraq as my brother bravely serves among them in a land far away from the comforts of home and family. It must more difficult than we mere mortals can image, and yet they do it everyday and call it their job.

Check out this story about my brother’s battalion on ABC News 7, a L.A. affiliate of ABC. John North embedded himself with the troops. The video gives a clear picture of what everyday life is like for the troops over there…and also the significant progress they are making.

Bring them home safely, Lord!

  • Does your brother happen to know how successfully the new Iraqi military has been trained? I.e. are they close to being able to hold their own?
