A’s still in Al Anbar. In fact, he was supposed to be leaving this weekend, but he’s been extended through the election. (Dec. 15.) Please pray for him, for his folks, and for his wife.
The Marines are in fierce fighting, from what I hear. I’m not quite sure how it works and I know I never want to be able to personally understand it.
Rest assured, “A” is very much in our prayers. His service, and your sacrifice, are appreciated more than can be expressed in a few words.
