"There never was a good war, or a bad peace." - Thomas Jefferson


This is a picture of my cousins husband, Hank, in Iraq. I am so proud of all of our soldiers and am really touched by the sacrifice they make for us. Isn't this picture neat? It was in published with the following caption:

ANAH, Iraq
"An Iraqi child examines the gear of 2nd Lt. Henry R. Nesbitt, the
platoon
commander for 2nd platoon of Company K, 3rd Battalion, 2nd Marine Regiment, Task Force Wolfpack, Regimental Combat Team 2, while on a foot patrol through the streets of Anah, Iraq. The fact that the Marines are building relationships with the various facets of Iraqi society is helping to bring everyone together, united, to pursue the same ultimate goal."

That is really touching. It hits home when you know someones dad & husband is out there away from his family. I'm so thankful too! Yeah that book is about him fighting cancer and dying. But, he hasn't died yet. He's beating it!
