I passed on a prayer request for Andy and his fellow Marines.
This quote from Michael Yon’s embed report explains why his mother is worried:
Rasmus interjected with a question about places where voting might not occur. Dr. Ayar said there were a few such places, like Haditha, Qaim and Rawa, where there is too much fighting now.
“And Tal Afar?” I asked, “Will there be voting in Tal Afar?” Dr. Ayar expects “maybe” 33 polling centers to open in that city, where much fighting had recently occurred.
These are the places Andy is going.
