Do you have a son or daughter, or even a spouse who is about to deploy to Iraq or Afghanistan and you're riddled with questions on how and what to do? Well where better to get that information, than from someone who's been there, and done that.
Some of you may already know her, but if you're new here let me direct you to a Soldier's Mom. It has been our good fortune to meet this wonderful woman, although the circumstances were not so wonderful.
She's been a milblogger for about about a year now, as a matter of fact her 1st blogoversary is in two days. This is an endeavor she started when her son was sent to Iraq. It was when her son was injured by an VBIED attack that set our paths to meet. Her son Noah was sent to Landstuhl, Germany. We happen to be stationed near by and wanted to make sure Noah had someone there for him until his mother could be there and to asure his mother as best as I could with any information available.. She and her husband did get here and in spite of circumstances we had a fine time. That was a few months back - and Noah is recovering well.
You can read about his unit in Time Magazine (it's the Special Issue: The Year in Medicine issue). There's a story starting on p.42 ("Symptoms of Withdrawal") but on p.44 there is a box story on 2/69AR A Co. -- and Noah's 3rd (Blue) Platoon.
I am honored to call her my friend and learn from her insight every time I read her blog. You should make it your daily read as well.

She is definately one fine mom/friend/wife, I could keep going on and on and on. She has been an inspiration to so many people.Posted by stacy lee at December 11, 2005 04:19 AM Hide Comments | Show/Add Comments in Popup Window(2) | (Note: You must refresh main page to view newly posted comments here)
