My mom (and my SIL, I'm assuming) received a call today to inform them that one member of my brother's unit has been killed and 2 injured. They arrived in Kuwait late last week.
That's all the information they will release at this time - but at least we know that my brother was not the casualty, nor among the injured.
Please say an extra prayer for all those serving in the military, especially those serving in dangerous zones. I don't think we could possibly offer up too many prayers for these courageous men and women. And, while it may be selfish, say a prayer for my baby brother as well. Let him stay safe in body and mind during this tour of duty.
