    EZ wouldn't do this but I wanted everyone here to say a prayer or pass on a blessing to Bootneck.

    He's been injured in Afghanistan...not too seriously...but a couple of his teamers got killed in the attack. IED of course.

    He needs our help because having been in his situation myself I know you can use all the help you can get.

    This is a prayer I always use to keep me and my loved ones safe:


    Psalm 70


    1 Hasten, O God, to save me;
    O LORD, come quickly to help me.

    2 May those who seek my life
    be put to shame and confusion;
    may all who desire my ruin
    be turned back in disgrace.

    3 May those who say to me, "Aha! Aha!"
    turn back because of their shame.

    4 But may all who seek you
    rejoice and be glad in you;
    may those who love your salvation always say,
    "Let God be exalted!"

    5 Yet I am poor and needy;
    come quickly to me, O God.
    You are my help and my deliverer;
    O LORD, do not delay.

    We all hate war. But we can't just walk away from it either. Bootneck knows the risks and is facing them. God be with him and bring him home safely.

    Well, I was trying to keep this private. Colin and I both talked and wondered if we should say anything public on here, we've told some friends in PMs.

    But Bootneck told me the reason he is still alive is because of our prayers, they are working for him, so please keep praying for his safety.


    And also,please say a prayer for his two Royal Marine brothers he lost last week. They have been laid to rest in their home country of England.


    Thanks to all,I will tell Bootneck his friends are thinking of him.

    I don't do prayers, but I wish Bootneck a fast and full recovery. It must be terrible to lose your fellow Marines.
