    If you have a family member or good friend who is currently serving in either of the wars, please post their name and a little about them. This is not a political thread nor will any political debate be tolerated. The thread is for one purpose only, so that those who wish to, can remember their people. Thanks everyone for honoring the intentions of this thread...to simply remember those who will not be with their families these holidays.

    Blake xxxxx, United States Air Force, Security Forces, he was first in South Korea, and is currently deployed in Iraq. He is my cousin, and he is very happy to have made it into the USAF, and I hope he is doing ok.

    Chris xxxxx, United States Air Force, Fire Protection, he is currently in the US, and he will be leaving for the Middle East (currently he has 2 bases opened) and I hope he stays safe, he has always dreamed of being a fire-fighter, and is doing his passion. He is a good friend, and helped lead me to the USAF.

    xxxxx= I excluded last names, do not like idea of spreading their full names without their consent over the internet, call it paranoia, just way I am.

    Stepson left for Afghanistan on Veteran's Day. He's a forward air controller and w/be where the action is that's for sure. I put my flag out and turned on the porch light and so it will be for the next 6 months.

    My son-in-law, Air Force Sargeant Larry ***** is just now returning from Afghanistan. He just called today from Germany. We are hoping he gets home in time to see his son (my grandson) be born. It's gonna be close!!!

    Uhhh....see my above post. I'm left wing (and some would say extreme) and I'm insulted by your tone.

    But I do have to wonder.....Are you ashamed of something? :confused:

    Just cognizant of some extreme leftists and their methods. No need to let them harass my family members or their commanders.

    My brother John leaves the 31st of this month for a one year tour in Iraq. He fly’s the Black Hawk choppers, Medivac (sp) Unit, I’m scared to death. Full medical bennies for his 3 children and their education paid in full,,, I’m so scared for him.
