Hi ADAM ESPENHOVER -- I keep checking this website everyday in hopes there is some verification of how or where you are and most importantly WHEN YOU ARE GOING HOME! I wish I knew what you needed over there. I haven't sent anything lately, other than smokes, because we've not heard if you received all of our other packages and mail. From other postings on this site it appears stuff is now getting to you but we're not sure what you want or need. I know you have other things to do besides write letters but hopefully you can get one off to your mom or dad soon. We have heard that you may be going back to Italy in about 6 weeks. That would be terrific but I really am not sure where that information came from so maybe we shouldn't count on it. Today is a rainy, dreary day but we didn't get the severe weather that was predicted. The news has pretty much deserted you guys--the channels that used to carry the Iraq war news 24/7 are now carrying paid advertising and other junk. As I've said before, I'm just hoping these messages are getting to you so I want you to know that you are loved and thought about constantly. Take care and call or write as soon as you have a chance. I'm hoping you have everyone's phone number and/or address. Love, Diane

Just wanted to let you know you're on my mind. Stay safe! You are irreplaceable!!! Love you tons, Mom PS: Jezebel tripped and fell during a cross country competition at a show on Saturday...and 'Manda cushioned her fall. 'Manda isn't sporting a cast, but the orthopedic doc thinks a small bone is broken in her elbow. You know your sister -- she's taking the whole incident in stride. :-) Oh, and Jez has a scrape on her leg and a little boo-boo on her head, but is okay.

If it is like that, well love of my life you deserve a huge kick where the sun doesn't shine!!!I got so worried on the phone, and by the way what the hell did you have to laugh for?

Hi Richie Farquhar..how are things in the sand tonight? Cold here but no bugs yet. We are heading to Port Huron this weekend so we will be checking in with your mom and dad. We say all of them last month and met Kristy's boyfriend when we were there. I see from Jamie's note that her dad is doing better that will make Uncle Gary happy..I'm sure by now you know they were best buddies growing up in Marysville. Don't know if you get to read these or not but I'll keep writing to you just in case. I have tried your email address but they bounce back at me. You made the papers in Onaway last week when a bunch of people from our church put ribbons on the Freedom Tree with your name on them. Your name is also in the window of an office downtown so all the town remembers to pray for you and your safe return...now there are about 25 other names on there too but we only look at yours and Corey's. Did you know your cousin Angela's husband is over there now too? He was in the Marine reserves and got called up. Angela is home with the two little boys. Well enough for now...hugs, much love, prayers and thanks for what you are doing for us. God Bless you and your company!

Your Dad keeps us posted and he was so excited yesterday and today to have received a letter from you this past week end. He is showing it to everyone! I would like to thank you on behalf of the Pine Crest family for the great sacrifice you have made in fighting for our freedoms and for what is right! You are a true HERO and we are so proud of you. I hope by now you have received the packages that we have mailed to you. There have been several letters mailed also from the different classes. All the students here now have a new HERO and are all looking so forward to meeting you someday when you can get a leave and visit us. Your photograph is posted on several honor boards around the campus and teachers constantly ask your Dad about your progress, whereabouts, and how you are doing physically and emotionally. He is so proud of you! Don't worry about him, he has plenty of people here who cares much for him and checks on him daily. He is very respected here and has earned our respect as one of our leaders. He has impressed so many with his knowledge and is such a wonderful asset to this school. I'm certain that you too share his traits and personality. Once again, I can not tell you how proud he is of you and how proud we are as well. Please share our thanks to all the soldiers of your unit and express our sincere gratitude to them as well. Hope to see you when you return. God Bless you! Love, Dana

He complained some, but was happy to be there. For Tom Hudson, the letters brought his 18-year-old son closer to him than ever. The two always had a strong bond, he said, but now each had experienced the horrors of combat and the longing for family. “Well, dad, we’re deep into Iraq now, and we’re starting to get into the crap” Thomas Colin Hudson wrote from Iraq, where he is with the 101st Airborne Division. “Dad, you were right, because I am scared to death. I blew you off when you tried to tell me that would happen, but you were right.” Tom Hudson, a Vietnam veteran and retired Army general, said the letter made him proud for his son. “I’m not a really sensitive man. Not many things get to my heart, but that did. It brought tears to my eyes,” said Hudson. The elation was followed by fear. Hudson said he knew what his son had jumped into, and it frightened him. “I was real scared,” said the 56-year-old. His reaction was common among families as they received their first letters from the front. First there was joy, regardless of what was written. Then, when they had time to read the letters again and think about the words, some worried and some were optimistic, but most felt a little bit of both. The letters, families said, were often the only sure things they could hold on to as they listened to news of bombings, shootings and fatalities. “No knock on the door” Chris Morang, 60, said she’s thankful her grandson, a Hug High graduate also with the 101st Airborne Division, waited until he felt safe enough and was in the right frame of mind to write home. The Sparks woman said she knew he was close to the Baghdad International Airport bombings, so she was happy he wrote when most of it was over and he was safe. Private Anthony Newman, 19, wrote: “I’ve had some scud missile attacks, nothing to be scared of… I’ve been, well, not scared, but it’s been more of an adrenaline rush.” Morang said the letter she received April 4 worried her, but a letter indicating any fear on his part would have upset her even more. Newman’s mother, Trudi Newman, of Henderson, said she’s had little contact with her son the past two months. She said when she received a letter from him in early April, she felt anxiety knowing he was so close to the fighting. “Every time a soldier would be killed in battle, my heart would sink, but then I thought, OK, no knock on the door,” she said. Trudi Newman, 40, is more relaxed now that the intense fighting is over, but she still has every family member and friend call before visiting her. No one knocks on her door without her knowing about it first. Letter on a box On April 17, Reno resident Leslie Burke, 50, received a piece of cardboard, torn off from some sort of box, with no postage whatsoever, but the words “Free Mail” written on it. It was a letter from her son, Cody Burke, 18, a paratrooper with the 173rd Airborne 508th Infantry. She had not heard anything from him since early March. “If I didn’t recognize his handwriting, I’d think it was a joke,” she said. It thrilled her to hear from him. But what he wrote made her even happier. “Right now, I’m happier and more relaxed than I’ve been in a while,” Burke wrote. She said that before the letter she wasn’t sure he was alive. Now she carries the cardboard in her purse wherever she goes. “(I’m) just doing some missions and making money with the biggest, baddest 60-mm mortar section in Iraq. Love you all, Cody.” Finding new words Kellie Roberson’s husband, Bobby is in the 152nd Security Forces Squadron at Prince Sultan Air Base in Saudi Arabia. His letters, some in email, revealed a side the 34-year-old Sparks woman had not seen. “He is not a very vocal person, and so the letters mean an awful lot because he says a lot in them that he normally would not say. The war has changed him in that respect, he’s much more open with his feelings,” said Roberson. He wrote: “What do you want to do when I get home? I'm thinking about us taking another vacation to your mom’s. I would love to see them and I think she might like to see me… I got your email attachment, you are the most beautiful thing I have ever seen.” Still waiting Some are still waiting to hear from their loved ones. Reno resident Ellen Wright has not heard from her son, Jarett, 20, who’s with the 3rd Battalion 5th Marine Regiment, since receiving a letter from him Mar. 27 dated three weeks earlier. She thinks she saw a photo of him in the Reno Gazette-Journal, but can’t confirm it. “Every day you go to the mailbox and when you don’t get a letter from him you’re disappointed,” she said. Beverly Tipps, 26, of Hemet, Calif., remembers that month and a half when she never heard from her husband, Staff Sgt. Allen Tipps with the Alpha Company, 1st Battalion, 5th Marines. She said watching the war coverage and not knowing how close he was to it was unnerving and scary. She said hearing about casualties was the worst. “You sit for 24 to 48 hours hoping it’s not your husband. Then time goes by and nobody calls and so you know they’re OK,” she said. Then she saw a photo of him in the Reno Gazette-Journal. She still hadn’t read any of his letters yet, but the photo was good enough. “Just imagining his voice, seeing him there, that he’s doing OK, made me feel better,” she said.

Spec James Jeleniowski- Hi Babe, I heard that some of the soldiers have been able to get these messeges so I thought I would give it a try. I just want to let you know how much I (& everyone) miss you, and we're all so proud of you and your friends. I think of you 24/7, and I don't want you to worry too much about me, even though I know how you hate when I say that, I'm doing fine. I look forward to getting another call from you, & I haven't gotten any more of the letters you said you sent:(. Just look forward, as I do, to when you come home, and we can start the beginning of our lives together. I miss having my goofy other half around to make me laugh. I'm going to the Kentucky Derby this weekend to be there for my dad, so you can call me on my cell if you get the chance...wish us luck, hopefully he's on the winner. I love you with all of my heart and soul and hope to hear from you soon. Love Forever...Ashley...XOXOXOXOXO's

Sgt Ben Keener C/1-508th-4/28/03-We woke up to about 6 inches of snow again this morning. I miss talking to you. We were doing alot of that the last few weeks before you guys deployed.We went to the Asparagus Festival in Stockton this weekend with Myndi and Ilea. Ryan called last saturday he wanted to know if we had heard from you and said to tell he loves you. The news media has dropped Iraq like a hot potato, everyone with loved ones over there is desparate for news and wondering when they can expect them home. Me too. Maybe a battalion of MOM's could clear up some of that mess. Not much to tell we love bunches and hope you'll be home soon. Tell your squad to write their mom's, wives and girlfriends your MOM says so and she's meaner than you. Love Mom

School started last week. so far weve had 5 tests I got 4-100's and1-97 Im doing good and hopefully the time will just pass right by. and maybe the timing will be close so that when you get back to Italy or maybe here???? that school will be over with And that I pass with a really good grade so if I decide to go to nursing school I'll get in with no problem that way I CAN HAVE SOME OF MY OWN MONEY with out you or your mother getting my ass all the time I have my own ambitions , just like you do with the army and I'm not going to give every thing up for you like I have in the past. so you see some thing are going to change when I move to Italy with Rheannah. missing you Love, your wife Jinnene

I sent another goodie package off Friday--don't know how long it takes to get there but I won't complain if you are already on the way home when the package gets to Iraq. I figure you should make a lot of friends with all the Marlboro Lights coming your way because there is no possible way you can smoke them all yourself. Not much going on around here.

AIRBORNE!!! Sgt Major William' I was given your e-mail address after I sent the following to the seta e-mail address. Being an NCO myself I am aware that that is where one goes when one whats something done and done now. I would appreciate any assistance, forwardances, or directions that you could send my way. I have been informed that so far as he knows, Col. Smith one of the longest termed presidents of our 173rd Airborne Brigade (Sep) Society, that our Sky Soldiers have been blessed by the Lord with no WIA or KIA's. He is also the president at the time that asked for a 'volunteer' to take over as KIA List Coordinator for 'the Herd'. Col Daniels (deceased) had carried this honor. This list was started in Nam and carried home with our colors, and has been and still needs to be updated and researched from Nam. I proudly was appointed to this most honorable duty. Sadly, but, as a part of war unfortunately there will/maybe some in most wars. I pray that a KIA List will or have not had to have been started. If one of our Sky Soldiers should fall I would be sadly honored to offer any assistance and or continue them into our original list. AIRBORNE!!! Sgt David A Watson Charlie 1/503 67-68 Task Force Black (Dak To) 173rd Airborne Brigade (Sep) KIA List Coordinator AIRBORNE!!! Sky Soldiers err-ah!, Stand In the Door! AIRBORNE!!! All the Way! Gung Ho! and as we said in Nam 'Fuckin A'. I am so truly proud of you. My first team leader, SSgt 'Sgt Rock' Jerry Curry, who spent 3 days short of a 4 year tour in Nam and I watch CNN 24/7. We both looked at one another when they announced that Turkey would not let the 'Funny 4th' cross their lands, and said here comes 'the New Herd'. Which by the way you are not known now as, you are 'the Herd'. When we watched your 'combat blast' CNN announced it as the 101st (Puckin' Buzzards) but we knew, the entire 'Herd' here at home did as well. It took a thousand phone calls from all of us to finally get CNN to recant and say that, it was the 'Elite Unit' of the 173rd Airborne Brigade (Sep) that had made that historic jump. AIRBORNE!!! About 600 of us old Sky Soldiers are in contact via the e-mails. And, we are so pissed that all we hear is the 3rd and the Marines. But, some of us feel that there may be a reason for that. You guys may be like Delta and not even 'be'. Most of the troopers here at home would truly love to be there beside you 'watching your backs'. When I went to the enlistment office like so many others, although the enlistment officer wanted the 'credits', they laugh politely and said that it would take a battalion of you all to watch each of our backs. lol They did offer that if it hit our shores that we would be called to volunteer to take over the National Guard duties of protecting our bases and facilities that they are doing such a fine and important job of doing. You should be proud of them. When I went through training at Fort Gordon (Airborne AIT) and at Fort Benning we were constantly reminded that if any soldier, especially a paratrooper did not respect every man and woman of each and every branch and duty while we were in combat then we were fools. Because, we would never survive without the entire support of all branches as one unit. Charlie 1/503, my unit, learned that well on Veterans Day '67 on Hill 889 after 'intentionally surrounding' a brigade of Mr. Charle's finest in one of their best ambushes, that, we knew were there. After all as we were taught. "Paratroopers are dropped into the enemy to distract and draw as much of the enemies forces about themselves. And, Gentlemen once you have done so and the battle is on you will have a 360 degree of kill zone and will have obtained your mission. YOU! Will have them surrounded you enemy." God! I miss not being there with you all. When you became AIRBORNE!!! You are AIRBORNE!!! for the rest of your life. eerah! I have a request. Lol, I know that who ever receives this first is not on the line, in the field and will be able to read this. My request: That as many of the Sky Soldiers as possible, especially those with the least amount of mail, receive this. If Col Yarborough and/or CSM Kilgore were fortunate enough to join you in any capacity that they receive this. As well as Joseph Hartranft and John Ryan, ranks etc. unknown. And as many of the Honor Guard members that attended and represented you all at our reunions. And especially Spec 4 Paul D Nguyen, 1/508 for which I am sending the following letter. As well as the Commander his BN Commander and CO. AIRBORNE!!! Paul, What an honor it was for you to present me with the new field patch and your 'blood wings'. The friend that you left them with, gave them to me the first time that I saw him. He said that you had him and all my friends listening to your story about how you became a Sky Soldier, almost in tears. They were so impressed with your demeanor and how you carried your self. I am so proud of you. If these are your 'blood wings' you must trade me with a pair you purchase. Every Sky Soldier here at home still has theirs as I do. I will stop by and visit your parents. Hope that this finds all of you and your fellow Sky Soldiers in good health and spirits. Hope to see you all at the reunions when possible. For three years a young high school student where I lived in CA would yell AIRBORNE!!! every time he saw me riding my bike around. I always yelled back 'All the Way'. One day I went by a house and he was out front watering the front yard. I did a u-turn and pulled up in front of him. He turned around and yelled hey Airborne. I freaked he was Vietnamese. (Paul, forgive me for that statement, but, you may understand if you have any ill feelings for 'rag heads' or 'skinnies' if you all have a name or are permitted to have a name for 'your' enemy of this particular war.) I talked to him with respect. He went on to tell me proudly that he was a senior and graduating soon, he wanted to go into the service. I told him go into the Army, Go Airborne, become a Ranger and request the 'Herd'. After I left for Tucson he did. Last Thanksgiving, '02, I was here in Anaheim and had just left to go back to Tucson. The next day he proudly marched wearing his dressed greens, a Red Beret into the pizza parlor that I frequented and watched sports with my buddies. Asking for me he was told that I had left and would be back sooner a later. He told my friends about the whole story and how proud that he was. He was leaving over seas the next day. He gave one of my friends a gift to give to me. It is a Herd patch and a set of wings that he said that he jumped with. If they are your 'blood wings', I feel that you should have them back. But, I am sure they are a set you jumped with with the intention of giving to me. Sure hope you were fortunate enough to have made the jump into Irag with the 1/508. I am so Proud of you and all of your Sky Soldier buddies. Tell then not to worry about their loved ones here at home. The remaining and capable 25,000+ 'Sky Soldiers here have their backs and your home land, 'The United States of America'. AIRBORNE!!!

To All the loved ones of the 173rd..... This site is wonderful and the creater is a Hero to me as well. Somehow, Someway, my son PFC Jarod Markham who is with the 2nd/503rd in Kirkuk DID receive an email that I posted on this site several weeks ago. So I suggest keep writing....I don't know how, but his letter to me Saturday stated that he received a piece of paper with an email from me on it...this is the only email site that I have used, so it is definately from this one.... Apparently some of us are finally getting mail...I received 4 on Saturday dating from late March to April 15th. I also received information from a trust worthy source that our 173rd is now receiving mail also...depending on exactly where they are depends on their ability to receive or write....Someone please correct me if the information that I am about to give is wrong, but to my uderstanding the 2nd/503rd is in Kirkuk....the 1st/508th is in Mosul or remains in Irbil near the original airbase they secured in late March....if anyone knows the whereabouts of others, please post.... They do suggest that you mail them stationary and envelopes when mailing them because some of them are writing on card board, etc. My last care packages contained boxes and boxes of writing pads, pens and envelopes that Jarod will be sharing with others.....there mail back to us is free, so no postage stamps are needed... God Bless you all.....and continue to PUSH (pray until something happens).... TO Jarod my son....Thinking of you constantly and praying even more..... Hope all is well, keep your head up, this will be over soon... Love you and miss you much!! Dad

1LT David Bernstein, 2nd platoon, B-company, 1-508th Infantry, Hi Sweetheart, happy anniversary... Today Andrea got a letter from Josh and I was so excited for her. I don't care how slowly mail, if any, gets to me, just as long as you are getting a steady stream of mail. I'd rather have you more rested or in the shade someplace than you worrying about writing. I hope you're getting these messages too. I hate sounding so dumb and on a message board, but I miss you so much. I got out of a speeding ticket :) I will tell you that story another time. Petey and I played tennis for the first time this year, yesterday and we called it ultimate tennis because I'm so horrible that I made him run over two courts. He and I are your biggest fans. I hope SFC Lauer and you are doing alright. I also hope Tom is making you laugh enough. He is great like that. Everyone always asks and says the most awesome things about you. You are such a positive person, I know you are making everyone's time there a little easier. I know you are probably tan, but please take the time to put on sunscreen... your body lasts a lifetime! Happy 23 month anniversary again Davey. I love you w/AMH, Alex

To Spc Bryan J. Kennedy, Dear Bryan, Greetings from Saint Ann School. Your mom told me you had access to email every now and then. I heard you got the other letter that came through the mail. Right now I am in my classroom and a little boy would like to say hello. His name is Eddie and he said his dream is to be a soldier. I thought it would be nice if he talked to a real one. Please tell your companions that the children (along with a lot of other people) pray for you every day. We even have a bulletin board which has a prayer for your return home soon. Did you know you were quoted in the Courier along with your mom? She'll have to tell you about it. Now a word from Eddie. I'll type what he says. "Hi, Bryan. I hope you come home safe. I hope this war will end in peace. Bye. Eddie" Take care, Bryan. Sister Carol

Daniel W. Kucerak II, 173d/2-503d Battle Company. Dan, I don't know if you are getting any of these messages or letters that we have mailed to you, but will keep trying. I just finished writing a message to you and hit the submit button but I don't think it went through, so here goes again. We are all fine and anxiously waiting to hear something from you. Grandpa had a hernia operation last week but is doing great. Doctor said he can do anything except lift anything too heavy. Shawn was home yesterday and went back up to college today. He is doing good. Justin is growing too fast. Just bought him new shoes, size 9. I think he is trying to catch up with you and Shawn. Justin won the Presidential Fitness Award at school last week. They had to do chin-ups, bar dips, long jump, vertical jump, shuttle run, I think that was all. They got points for each event according to how many they could do or how fast they ran. He got 511 points which put him in the 500 club. His name will be engraved on a permanent wooden plaque at the middle school. He almost gave up one day because he had hurt him arm the day before he had to do the chin ups. I told him if you were here you would tell him to stop pissin and moanin and get his -- up there and just do it. I told him to do this one for you and he did 15 chin-ups. The class record was 16. You can't tell that I am proud can you? We went shopping today and bought a bunch of stuff to send to you. I emailed the public relations office in Italy and asked if we could send packages to you yet. Previously they told us the post office was only accepting letters. When I get the okay, we will send packages. We love you and miss you and can't wait to see you. Love MOM

It is good to hear that most people are recieving several letters and phone calls from their love ones, but I have yet to hear from my little brother. You know I have been through the waiting game, as a Company Commander's spouse 3 times, along with several deployments. But, I must say that this is a little ridiculous. If you have forgotten my phone number, please look it up on your personal e-mail account. Have you recieved any packages from the Recruiting Bn and mother's school? Hopefully, we will hear from you soon. Remember, your little sister love you very much and miss you. God Bless you.(Tears)

Raining here in the Sunshine State...headed out to do the task of life (groceries, supplies, etc.) All is well here and back in Tennessee....Margaret is doing fine as well as Mom and Allie....Allie taught McKenzie to give a "high 5 yesterday" which made her day....We are all looking forward to a phone call and for that great message that you are headed back to Italy..... Praying for you constantly and you stated in your letter to keep on doing so....son you don't have to worry, God knows you and all the other soldiers by first name because I'm certain there has been more praying going on in the past several months than ever before.....God is with you and he is with America....George Bush, Cheney, Rumsfield, Powell, Gen. Franks, and all your leaders are Godly men....as well as Sgt. Gueringer.....(his wife it too much of an angel for him not to be a Godly man) As I wrote to you recently, I discovered that Gen. Franks is an elder in the Church......What better leaders could any soldier have....This war is being logged in the "book of life" as good deads done by all....St. Peter will read them to all some day....What greater deads could you have done than to liberate a depressed nation from the grip of Satan..... I love you and miss you very much....can't wait to see you soon.....God Speed to all the 173rd and their families....God is with them all!! Love you, Dad

We have sent a bunch of letters, but either you don't like to write or I'll have to come over their and give you a 9 1/2, you know where. Just wanted to say that you are missed by many, prayers are being said by many(and these prayers are for all the men and women there), the yellow ribbon is hanging on the tree in the front yard waiting for you to take it down. After reading some of these e-mails that have already been sent to the soldiers, I see that everybody is having a problem getting messages to the 173rd. Will make the next one longer, hopefully this will get to you. Remember to keep them crossed. WE SEND OUR LOVE, I can still remember when not getting mail was a real pain in the Dupa. Love Dad

To 1LT David Bernstein (2nd Platoon, B-Company, 1-508th Infantry) Hi Sweetheart, A really nice gentleman writing to his son said (on this site) that you might be lucky and get this message, so I decided not to stop writing. HAPPY 23 MONTH ANNIVERSARY! (April 28) I am so lucky to have you as my best friend..my boyfriend. I can't thank you enough for being so patient, kind, understanding.. and showing me (a professed selfish, spoiled brat) that my own capacity to love someone else grows daily. I've said it more than once... You exceed everything I thought was perfect... you have more amazing qualities than I can begin to list. Maybe I am not the "brightest star in the sky"... but you definitely make me the happiest. You have helped me in more ways than you will ever realize. Having you in my life is the gift you give me every day. I'm so thankful for you. We rock! I love you with all my heart~ Alex

Everyone here is okay...Margaret is fine too and misssing you....She is the last worry that should be on your mind...she loves you with all her heart and soul..no doubt that she will be my daughter-in-law one day........ Your request for the Z-28 is granted. I will drive it back to Tennessee when you get your leave......maybe you can fly into here or Miami and we can take the trip back together........ Praying for you constantly......you will be receiving so much in the way of snacks, supplies, etc. from home and from here that you will have to get a supply truck to carry it all....everyone here even sent extras for you to share with the soldiers who may not receive anything......hope everything can be used.... God Bless you my son.....

As I read several letters today that 2nd graders here wrote to you, a tear came to my eye as they described you as their Hero....No longer does Batman, Superman, Spiderman come to mind to them, but now GI JOE is their Hero....and that is so true....each and every "GI JOE" and "GI JANE" out there is a modern day hero! From the maintenance divisions, support divisions, sailors, pilots, cooks, special forces, and infantry and anyone I may have missed....you are all HEROS!! Jarod I know that you are my HERO and I am so honored to be your father....son, you make me look good, no longer are you "riding on my coat tail" I am now riding yours and damn proud to say so...A big salute and Hooah to you my son, I am so proud!!! Keep your head low, your spirits high, keep praying daily, and you will be home soon.......God has a plan for you.....

Everyone asks about you all the time; keep askin me if I've heard from you. From what I've heard on TV, the war seems to be all but over. Do you know how long you will be over there? Just want you to know that you are thought of all the time. We all are so proud of you and the other troops. We pray that you stay safe and return home soon. You are always in our thoughts, in our prayers and in our hearts! Hugs & kisses, Mom and Joe

I have been unloading trailers all week at work - I normally sort the boxes after they come out- and my legs are just covered in bruises! I counted almost 30 little bruises just on one thigh! Ty says they are the most disgusting legs he's ever seen and that people will think he beats me! Maddy is still not talking, but she has plenty to say! We got the film developed, so I will try to get some pics into the mail to you. I have been really busy this week. Thank God it's Saturday! Hope you aren't too bored anymore. Just remember- you'll be home soon. And this is the adventure of a lifetime; nothing will ever be like this. Love you, Jodi

We are going out today to get more supplies to send you. I can't wait to hear from you personally. We watch the news all the time.

Hey, in your email you said you were coming home . . . did that mean Myrtle Beach or Itatly? I really hope it's here. I miss you much Dusty. I have a couple pictures from the wedding that I want to send you, so look for them. Mike and I are doing good, okay that's a lie - we're doing great! Standing with him at the alter when Mandy was getting married but a lot of things in perspective for me (him too I think). Everyone was asking us when the date was for out wedding. That made me feel really great! I love him Dusty, with all my heart. He's like this amazing gift that God sent to me. I spent the whole day with his mom and sister before the wedding and really connected. His mom told me that she was glad that Mike had me and that she was glad that I was in her life too. (That made me that happiest that I have been in a long time. And it helped to clear any doubts that I had). I was getting worried cause I haven't heard from you in along while, so when I recieved your email I was very relieved. Sorry I worry so much - its my nature - but more importantly I love you Dusty and just want you to come home safe. Thank you for all your hard work to keep us safe, I'm so proud of you. Hey got a couple corney jokes for you . . . ready? What do you call a cow with out legs? . . . . GROUND BEEF (HA) What do you call a Nun who likes to take walks? . . . . A ROMAN CATHOLIC.

This is for Josh Blaney, 173rd/1/508/C company, Josh, it's mom again. It's driving me crazy not hearing from you in going on 6 weeks now. I've been told that these emails don't get to ya'll, but I'm sending it anyway. I've also been told you must be in an area where you don't have access to telephones and that's why we haven't heard from you. We haven't gotten any mail either. It's starting to get concerning and irritating. The President has pretty much declared the war over. We don't hear hardly anything on televison about it now and there's not much in the paper either. I know the country is in a mess, but it looks like with all the media coverage they had during the war that we could hear something soon. At least they should notify the families where you are so we will know all is well with you. I'm going to send you a care package Saturday, and I hope you get it. From what I hear ya'll aren't getting your mail--I hope that's not true. If you do get to write, let me know what you need. Are ya'll getting decent food? I really miss you and would love to hear your voice. Sarah and Carley miss you too. Carley's dog, Diamond, is expecting three puppies anytime now. She took her to the vet the other day because she was getting fat and they did an xray and found out she was pregnant with three puppies. Carley's all excited. I hope she can have them, because she is so tiny. Anyway, please write and call if you get the chance. We miss you and love you much! LOVE, MOM

To PFC JAROD MARKHAM..2nd/503rd.... Jarod, Hope this finds you doing well...anxiously awaiting a letter from you.....I realize we must support our USA as I do, and our President as I do....but sometimes the ARMY can be the most unorganized bunch of bozos on the face of this earth....I understand that your unit is one of the last to recieve mail because of a FU that someone did....last info you had received nothing from home and we have received nothing you have sent.....what is so ironic is that many soldiers are home (which is a blessing!) and 1 soldier was being questioned for sending illeagal Iraqi weapons back to his base...excuse me but we can't even get a letter?....someone who has power in the 173rd needs to read this....our soldiers moral is low as well as their families...PLEASE GET OUR SOLDIERS MAIL!!!! Please get them email set up or do something....the media thinks the war is over, we have no contact with our soldiers.....get something done!!!!!!!.....just as the information we have received thus far is always wrong or changed at the last sec.....just wonder sometimes how we can put a man on the moon, win a war in a few days, but can't seem to get mail a few thousand miles away.....DUHHHH....just would not work in corporate America, someone would be looking for a new job.......sorry, son, I'm certain you are more disturbed than I am by not receiving anything yet..... I also understand that you will be surviving your entire stay on MREs....How about General Franks eating MREs for 6 weeks...... Sending you all my love and prayers...sorry your unit seems to be getting the shaft.......and you made History...29th Jump behind enemy lines... Hope to get you back soon to hot showers, good food, and MAIL!!!! Love and miss you much......I am having to read "I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me" several times today...not a good day....wanting some answers as to why the mess up in the mail and why no "mess hall" set up for you...........just an angry Dad.... Will chat with you later my son...but you are probably not getting these anyway......who knows? Love always, Dad Hooah....God Bless all the 173rd....

I am amazed how you tracked me dow way up here with DiAnna, and Jim. Cesar was mad that he didn't get a chance to talk to his daddy though. He is so proud of you, and misses you so much! I am glad I married such a wonderful man like you, our hero! Cesar tells everyone about his daddy being a Hero:) We're all so proud of you! If dumbass works it right he should be leaving Vicenza as soon as he gets back..which is just fine with me. I've spent many a night listening to Jake and Cory ask me if I was smoking crack, or mainling heroin when I was with "it." They are sooooo happy I stoped riding the white trash bandwagon!! Jake said that going to OSU to get the last year of your chemistry degree would be so easy...he's checked into seeing about transfering to some school out west. Bill is working at some Firm in Oregon, and said he could get me a foot in the door at KU Law if I wanted it. I think Law School is going to a great move!

Hi John Doles Your Dad still in OK working in Chelsea on property. We got Skyler & Chris Monday to help dig for water breaks, found 2or 3 fixed them. Now we have water. Wed to windy to burn branches will try Thurs. then get bulldozer guy out. We got out mortgage papers done and jobs verified yesterday. This is for the construction loan on foundation part. We got a good interest rate so glad to get it before it goes up, It won't go down any lower that is. Your Dad should be back up here in Wichita Sat or Sunday. He needs to get things done down there while has time off. We saw Curtis & family & Skyler & Kodiak boy he is a big boy. Spent Easter with Lee & Jeremy at his Moms house, then visited my Sons family at his wifes Moms home all in Broken Arrow. Had Stacey with us so back to Bixby with her. I drove back up here Tues afternoon had to work. Chris I think got charges dropped for the domestic violence and his DUI may be changed to DWI, doesn't go back to court until August. Still no ID trying to get one Tag agency won't accept his copy of birth certificate. So he can't get a decent job with out proper ID. Well take care Love Sonja & Your Dad

Glen Rice....Hey Muck! I talked to the whole crew tonight and everyone says "hi" Chrissie says you might be back by july! That gives us all a ray of hope. Are you receiving any of the packages we are sending? Again... if you have to carry all of it I'm so sorry. It all seemed important at the time :o) I talked to Chrissy and she sounds good. She misses you but we all do that. The kids are getting big and bad. They got new bike helmets for Easter they didn't need all that candy! Sheila is going to try and come home around mother's day, that should really stir the town up! You know how reserved she is. I hope all is going well over there. We are so proud of you! And we miss you terribly. when you got to call it was all everyone could do to wait until 8am to pass the word. I wouldn't have cared if they had called at 2! Take care of yourself and we'll keep sending stuff. I've got a Daffin's bunny here with your name on it! It will still be here when you get back! Love Ya Sandi

Hey ADAM ESPENHOVER - I bet you are getting real sick of hearing from me by now aren't you? I keep writing in hopes that these messages are getting to you. It's pretty frustrating not knowing how things are going with you or being able to communicate in any way other than letters that take weeks to go back and forth. Your letter said you wanted some Copenhagen but when I went to the store last night I found out it's not that simple. I am sending a couple different kinds to you and somehow you will have to let me know what kind is your favorite. Although I am sure you can find someone to share the unwanteds with!! The last couple of days have been really nice but supposed to rain tomorrow and next few days. Getting pretty dreary and windy right now. Well, time to go check out today's paper and see if you made the news. Still searching websites to see your cute little mug but no luck so far. Take care and write to your family when you have a chance. Love, Diane.

BRYAN SCHULTZ: Just another post. Feel like all these posts are somewhere in cyberspace (along with all the letters sent). Found a post from your CSM saying you guys would be getting mail soon. By the time you get it, you'll all have to carry around 25 pounds of letters each. Also got a letter from the Family affairs office of your BG CDR providing info on what company you're assigned to. No info on what platoon. That ltr also says nothing over 13 oz. or packages can be sent. Somewhere there's a helluva pile of baby wipes. By the time you get them you'll have hot running showers, toilets and a room of your own. HA. I guess, just leave the baby wipes with Iraqi moms for their babies; leave the condoms. If they figure out how to use them...it may help control a future reginme population. (no slur intended there...right!) Keep safe. Love, mom and dad.

JJ- I can't wait until you come home. I have so much gossip for you. Things are out of control. I would write you a letter and fill you in but I'm too lazy. If you need anything sent to you let me know and I'll send it. I talk to your mom and try to keep her updated. She's hilarious. B-Co was all over tv right after you guys left. You guys looked great. I'm sure the company store has been making money and you will have one huge party when you get back. I've stocked up on Hoegarden. Hopefully you've had time to work on your rap album, "Down With the Freaky Sh**" I know you were hoping to become a big star and maybe you still will once this is all over. If Eminem can do it.... E-mail me and let me know if you read this. Tell Mel and the rest of the guys hi for me. Things aren't the same without you. Ciao

John B. Pellett Able Co.2/503rd. I am sure I saw your picture guarding the city hall in Kirkirk, but I could not get anyone to believe me. I copied it and to it to Greenville but the printing was not a clear as on the computer. I talked to your folks while we were in Greenville, they were doing well in Memphis. Everybody is anxious to get some word from you. I hope they will hear from you soon. We had fun visiting the Grandparents. Frank and Scott took the kids to the farm for fishing, walking, fire building and general fun. It was too cold to spend the night, but they are going to try again for that. They really want to sleep in the cabin. I suppose you could really tell them a thing or two about "cambing out". We can't wait to hear the details. It looks like we have accomplished our goals over there so maybe you will get a little vacation. Hope it will be soon. Don't forget as soon as you come home we are going to have a really big party. Matt wants it to be during school because I have promised to take him out of school to go to wherever the party is. Well take care and remember we are praying for you and your companies safety. Love you so much, your Aunt Joan and family

TO: PFC ROMAN, JOVANY 3RD/PLT B2-503RD Hello son, how you're doing? busy isn't it? Well, Jova I know you can't communicate with us right now but hey! I'll keep you posted about things around here. Firstable, let me tell you that Mari came and she's spending two weeks with us in FL and mami Coco is here too, but she got sick in PR and I picked her up over there since she wasn't feeling good, she had like a mine stroke and right now she is in the hospital but she's getting better every day. Soon she'll be home againg. She's going to stay with us for ever, since she needs attention and Samuel can't take care of her any more. Anyway, she really need a woman to take care of her, so I've decided to get in charge of her. We all miss you and everybody asking for you, praying for your prompt return. May the Lord bless you and the rest of yor brigade. God bless our paratroopers and God bless America!!! MAMI

Whine whine..I'm sure to get alot of sympathy from someone who has to put up with your living conditions...sorry!Duane is in the hospital and had surgery but he is doing fine now. I went to Walmart to buy lightbulbs yesterday and came home with a cart load of stuff to send off to you!! We are probably overdoing it with all of the stuff being sent but you can give to others of course. Just wanted to say hi again-love you, miss you, hope to hear from you VERY soon. And I don't carry your letter around like a purse--Diane must of had a high temp and was delusional!!! But the duct tape job and envelope was pretty unique! Heard the 4th Division was heading up north. Will you be rotated out like some of the soldiers down south are now, or is the 173rd there to stay for duration of the humanitarian aid? They aren't reporting much on the news regarding that.I am looking forward to opening up my email someday and seeing your name on mail sent!!! That would be very sweet! Love you always, Mom

I've just read that you guys have been split up into different groups, is that right??? Just drop a note as soon as you can, ok? All the guys here in the office say "TWO THUMBS UP FOR YOU GUYS!!!!" It's finally time to close the door over here, can't wait to go back home, actually it will take awhile before beeing able to open the door!!! Grocery shopping + I have to buy apposite bags for the garbage, can you reckon?? I put the garbage out few days ago and they didn't collect it because I had the wrong bags!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I was so mad!!!! So, in order not to store all the garbage on the verandah or in the garage I'd better go and buy those f***** bags!! I love you, you really are my sunshine! ALWAYS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Hi ADAM ESPENHOVER--Been thinking of you even more today. I was sick all weekend and laid in bed--no shower, no shampoo, no toothpaste--and felt absolutely horrible. Then I thought of how you much feel after sleeping in mud and on cement and no shower. That is almost inhumane!!! Yuck!! But you're tough and I'm a wuss right? Your mom read your letter to me and then brought it to me yesterday so I could read it myself. Your little homemade envelope works pretty well. Where she tore the tape off it kinda formed a handle so it looks like a purse now and she can carry it with her wherever she goes! Ash stopped in at the office today for a few minutes. She dyed her hair again so now she is dark with light streaks. I'm sure it will be different the next time I see her. Well, just wanted to say hi and, as usual, hope you are safe and taking care of yourself. And I'm really hoping the webmaster is delivering these messages to you!! Until next time...Love, Diane P.S. I promise Copenhagen to follow soon.

I don't know what you need, but I will just put a lot of different things in there. I know you could probably use something to clean up with. I have heard that ya'll haven't been able to shower. That has to be horrible for as long as you have been there. I'll send a phone card and maybe you will find a place that you can use it to call home. I hope you can find a phone somewhere to use. I really would like to hear your voice and know that you are ok. Well, we're getting close to May 10th. Eric and I went and got our marriage license Friday. We had Friday off which was nice, but the weekend seemed really short. I didn't talk to Sarah over the weekend. I called yesterday to wish her a happy Easter, but I got her voicemail and I never heard from her. Eddie and the kids came over to get their Easter bunnies yesterday. We went to see Eric's grandson. He's still on oxygen and is very yellow. The poor little thing has had such a hard time. He's about the size Eddie was when he was born now. He's 5 lbs. 8 oz. He's still so tiny. I hope he will be ok. They still don't know if he will be able to hear or see. Carley is doing good. She's sending you a letter this week. I'll try to call Uncle Woody tonight and give him your address and I'll give it to Grandpa too. Lindsey said she was going to send you a care package this week also. I don't know how long it will take you to get it. Well, better go. You take care! Love you much, MOM

SSgt. Jasan Weaver, Hope you had a Happy Easter! Dad and I did not do much here. I actually cooked (enough for the army!). We will be eating left overs for a week or more. I got your letter. Nice stationary. I was very happy to finally hear from you. It made me breathe a sigh of relief (for the moment). Keep yourself safe. We think of you often and keep you in our prayers. Your sister called early this a.m. She tells me that she is still going to be deployed though she does not know exactly when. Maybe she will be close to you and the two of you can look out for each other. There are rumors that you might be coming home soon or not so soon (maybe September). Have your heard anything? Have sent some packages. Hope you have received them by now. If not they will be there soon (I hope). Keep safe. We love you. Love, Mom

You are constantly in our thoughts and prayers. I think God he is taking care of you. We have been scouring the news everyday for anything about the 173rd; there hasn't been hardly anything lately. All I can figure is that you are either in Mosul or Kirkuk. We miss you so much and can't wait to hear from you. I hope you have you received our letters and care packages; I know co-workers of mine have sent care packages too. I will keep sending things as I can afford. Let me know what you need. Look forward to hearing from you (soon, I hope). Love Mom

Do you have any chance to E-Mail me. If so send me a quick message. Did you get our packages? I don't know if I should send more or not because it seems like things are almost over and I don't know when you will be back in Italy. I am really ready to see you guys. We are always thinking and prayer for you and all the soldiers fighting for our country. I check the website daily and I found your picture #24.

To Pvt.JOHN PELLETT----Dear John, We are still keeping up with Able Co. through Ken Dilanian. We think you may have received some mail by now, but the packages may be on hold somewhere in APO land. Today is Easter, and Alex is working. Great weather here and the garden looks good. I went to the middle of nowhere in Mississippi to interview an AFS host family yesterday. They have a horse ranch where both parents work 4 days a week, so they can have long weekends with the family. The father likes to travel, the more exotic location, the better. He was in the Army, and that probably has something to do with his wanderlust. Each week that goes by has GOT to be one week closer to your R & R in some lovely place that is not in chaos. We love you and will see when you are receiving visitors, or when you can get to Memphis, whichever comes first. Love from all 3 of us, Mom, Dad and Alex

To Roberto C. Sandifer, B Co 2/503rd. Happy Easter Dusty!! All is well on the homefront. We are doing the usual routine on this Easter morning: sunrise service, visit grandmother and then off to breakfast. One thing we miss is you showing up late for breakfast (you know what that mean)and missing out on a good meal. Thanks for e-mailing mother and daddy. She has printed off five copies of that e-mail and you know by now everybody and town has a copy of it. One thing that puzzles me?? In the e-mail you said that everybody was okay (I am happy for you and your Bde), but you had a lot of misspelled words, which leads to two things.

It would sure be nice to hear your voice or to at least hear from you. I try to keep up on what's going on through this website. I look at the pictures all the time to see if I see you in one. At work, they are putting up a board in the lobby of City Hall with pictures and a brief narrative of troops of employees of the City and residents of SB who are serving over there. Mexico Restaurant also has a couple boards with the same. I submitted a picture and narrative of you and one of the attorney's whose son is over there did the same. The Clerk's office is sending a copy of the pictures over to the Mexico, so you will be in both places. I just wanted to make sure you were recognized in some way. Everyone at work says hi and they thank you all for what you are doing. Wish you were here for Easter. We miss you so very much. Just wanted to write you a short note and tell you we LOVE YOU and MISS YOU. HAPPY, HAPPY EASTER. Please know that you are always in our thoughts, our prayers and in our hearts, along with all the other wonderful, brave troops. We are so very proud of all of you. Please be safe and hurry home.

Dearest Jon: Happy Easter and Happy Patriot's Day. Two years ago, at this time, you were gearing up to do one of the most difficult things you had ever faced- The Boston Marathon. Remember? That must seem like thousands of miles and years away. But I can still remember (with tears even now) how thrilled, how moved, how inspired Dad and I were as you took those heartbreak hills with a vengeance! And I shouted as you ran past to look at the rest of the race as of there's only one 10K race ahead of you. I pray you have just one more 10K to go. Draw on that experience now. Remember how dog tired you were but you made it. What a feat, what an accomplishment. It was all you....With Love and Pride......MOM

SGT. JOEL BEDNAR. Hey since this is a family affair now I wanted to get my word in too! For being an Insurance salesman Cory is a lot more wordier than me the guy with the English Degree now isn't he! I'm still waiting on that war loot! I told Cory that you are a good guy. Much better than that other thing she brought home! I have no idea what kind of drugs she was on when she thought that was a good idea. We hated him from the minute we met him. We did over protect Wendy, and maybe that first one was our fault. we never let her date anyone we didn't approve of. Then she goes off to the Army where we couldn't watch over her choices and choose what ever that was! Welcome to the family my man. We're disfunctional, but we're one hell of a great bunch of people to know. Hey heard you weren't getting mail for a while, so my dad is friends with a general in the pentagon who in charge of Logistics. He called him, and he returned saying you would get some soon now if he had to fly the damn plane himself. Keep the faith. You watch your back, and we'll watch your girl! If you need anymore let us know! I'm like Klinger, I can get you anything, anywhere!

JOEL BEDNAR (Wendy's husband). Wendy just let me on here. Megan and I want to tell you how proud we are to have you join our "Family." When you married Wendy, you married us. We are also proud of the job you and your fellow soldiers are doing down there. I did read what your wife just wrote and I don't think the people of Iraq would know what to do with her. She's always been this way, ever since we were small children! What would they do with an educated woman with her spunk and drive! She'd be deported in hours of her arrival I'm willing to wager. She is doing well here at home, so no need to worry about her or your son. We are very happy to take care of them, and spend time with our godson. He is a boy's boy for certain! Megan now thinks we should consider having children after spending the day with Cesar. Thanks man! Now look where you have me! When can we expect another god child from you and Wendy? I hope you come home as soon as possible. I can see the happiness in Wendy's eyes when she talks about you, so I know you're a good man. Take care of my best friend, because Jake and I love her a lot! She probably already told you that we've all been friends since "Sperm" as we've always put it. So she means the world to us, as I am sure she does to you! Good Luck, Cory & Megan Seaton

SGT. JOEL BEDNAR, Hey babydoll! Well, I saw your photo on the site today:) It was so good to see that you're looking well. I couldn't mistake those cheeks, and that adorable nose anywhere!!! I printed off a few copies..one for Cesar since he was very happy to see daddy in uniform and of course with your SAW! You know that child, and weapons. Anyhow...You're an UNCLE today:) DiAnna had Jacob Joseph Olson at 0912 this morning! He's 7 lbs. 11 oz, and 20 1/2 inches long. He is adorable. Other than that I have found my calling in life! I read an article where a solider in Baghdad interviened in a man beating a woman on the street. when he was told that it was ok that the woman was the man's property..the soldier made my day! He explained that "NO! not any more...you're laws are gone along with your regiem...our laws stand here now. which means you cannot beat a woman, not in my sight and get away with it! This is Martial law, and I AM the LAW!" Soooo I've decided that I will start a Women's Outreach Program! With my militray training and background I will teach those women to reach right out and throw those men a beating if they lay a hand on them!! To top it off after law school I will be more than rich as I become a divorce lawyer down there! Afterall isn't democracy great! I will make sure to leave those guys with as much as I left Spc. Meza with...their underwear! See if they like hitting women then:) Jake still thinks I'd be happier as a Mercenary, but agrees there's less legal hang-up's with this calling:) I love you whole buchies babydoll!~~~~~Princess PS. I liked what one of the parents on here told thier son.."Stay away from those who use bad language, and read those 'girlie" magazines:)", but I know that would leave you with no one to associate with!! To include yourself!

Hi ADAM ESPENHOVER. I don't know if you are getting these messages but I'm sure not going to take the chance that they are delivering messages to all you guys and you will be without one for the day. Talked to your mom today and she was thrilled because she got your letter. I sent a package off to you today as well now that it appears the mail service is up and running between here and there. We are not doing a family Easter this Sunday--waiting until May 4 when Pam returns from Miami. Will be going to Storm Lake for brunch at the college I guess. Scott and I are going to Des Moines with his family. I had a cute little Easter card with a pair of bunnies (wink, wink) that I was going to send to you in your package but found it still on my desk when I got back from the post office. Well, better not take up all the space on this board. Will send you a real letter one of these days. I know, I've said that before but I really will sometime. Take care and stay safe. Love you, Diane.

Now the bad news! Felicia is to be married on June 22nd.She said that her heart was saved for you but since she had not heard from you in over 10 years she figured that it was all over between the two of you and that her biological clock is clicking off the hours. I told her that you have been busy but she didn't think that anyone could be THAT BUSY! At any rate, you still have two months to make it back and show up at the church and when the preacher asks is there anyone who objects to these two to be wed in Holy Matrimony you can jump up & say, "I Do"! Afterall, those are the only words she has wanted to hear from you! We hope that otherwise all is well with you. Your mother has been on the horn to the Chief of Staff to tell him that you like a hot breakfast every morning and a hot shower every night and for him to tell you the next time he talks to you to be sure that you change your socks every day as that is what Van Johnson did in "Battleground" and he was still alive at the end of the movie! She also told him to tell you not to associate with anyone who uses bad language or reads those "girlie" magazines. Well, between you & me it sounds like you will be friendless were you to take those admonitions too seriously. Oh Yes, Happy Easter! Dad

To LT Charles M. Diggs Dear Charles, Wishing you and the soldiers of 501st FSC a Blessed Easter. Not a day goes by that I don't think of you all and pray that GOD protects you all. Please know that you all are missed in ways you may not ever know. I hope by now that you all are getting your mail. I got a letter from some guy named Charles in Iraq, he said he LOVES ME. If you happen to meet him, tell him I LOVE HIM just as much. I heard there will be Ludicrous CDs on sale at the new Vicenza Power Zone when the unit returns home! By the way, I need a 5 person detail for area beautification! MREs will be provided! Laughter is Good for the Soul. Take Care and Be Safe. Love Always and Forever, Pearlice

But, I've said the same thing every time: We all miss you very much, we are all proud, and you are a hero back here in your hometown. I scavenge the pictures that are posted on this site, sometimes with a magnifying glass, and have yet to spot you! Get in there and get on film! I cannot imagine you without a shower for three weeks...I can remember when you emptied a 50 gallon hot water heater twice a day! Don't worry, though...we'll have all the soap and hot water here at home, just waiting for you to empty it out! Happy Easter! We love you. MOM

Message for SGT Will Williams, 173rd, CSC. Hey Sweetie. Well it is Easter, Good Friday. My boss will give us off at noon. Kinda nice, This is a makeup day for me. I did not have enough leave for Pa's funeral so I traded one of my Fridays off. Just happens to be today. I have your voice on my answering machine from when you called to say bye, so I listen when I really miss you! Sara has today and Monday off. Love you, ya know? You and all the Wolverines, and the rest of the Sky Soldiers, are in my prayers. I know you guys are making the best of a bad situation, but still miss the comforts of home. I remember my days with REFORGER (REturn of FORces to GERmany). Especially with the porta potties (you should be so lucky) and the two inches of frozen urine on the seat, and trying to monuver my NBC suit to between me and the seat so I could us the thing. AH-H-H the good ol days! Or being in the BOX and trying to wash my hair in my "steel pot", or being one of the women in the tent and the respect the guys gave us for our privacy when we needed it. You guys will remember these days, no matter how tough or uncomfortable they are, with smiles and warm fuzzies in the future. I know the soldiers have received good training, and it will kick in when needed. I have never seen actual war, but I have trained and used that training in mock wars as you guys. Team work does work and you will make the team work. I am so proud of all of you. This is getting too long, better go. I love you very much. I am SO proud of you. You have met, jumped and stumbled over life's hurddles. Look at you now...you shine! All my love to my son, "Lead By Example" Mom.

SGT. JOEL BEDNAR, HHC 1/508th Joel, Be on the look out..my AirForce Buddy called and he said he is probably going to be running missions to the north. Remember me telling you about Don. So if a C-130 Loadmaster by the name of SSG. Don Rowland comes by your neck of the country...say hello:) I told him to grab some babywipes and stuff to take with him if he does go your way, so he may arrive with goodies:) I really pray for all of your saftey and quick return. I cannot afford to lose one more friend like this. Bobby was too young, and I know Don is feeling his mortality...I just wish he'd more positive! I guess lossing so many of our friends makes you kinda gun shy. Do me a favor and if you do see Don let him know how missed, and loved he is by all of his friends, and if we had a full address for him we'd send him packages too! He only left us the APO AE and the zip, but he is not with his squadron...tell him we need a full address! Also that Joyce and her children miss thier Uncle Don-don too:) I love you so much Babydoll! You guys have to come home...I realized the other day that almost everyone I know is deployed. Those of us back here are bored without you all:) WHOLE BUNCHIES BABYDOLL ----- Princess (Sweet Pea)

Do you need anything? I am sending another care package, so I am hoping that the one you are to get has a lot of the items you need. If not, let me know and I will go to plan B. Please know that the people back home support the job you are doing. You are in our thoughts daily, so when and if you feel lonely, know that you have a HUGE network of family and friends (and friends you dont know yet) that are with you. Love, Momma Peggy

Jas scored a sick goal..he's been playing well. Philly just tied the series 2-2 with Tornoto so there are some other happy boys around... Devils just got killed by Boston 5-1 but they play tonight series at 3-1 for New Jersey. Stars-Oilers 2-2 Modo needs to step it up. Colorado-Wild 3-1, Blues-Vancouver 3-1, Senators-Islanders 3-1. Now you a are fully updated. I will fill you in on all my other silly details later.... Miss you in enormous amounts!

I hope we'll hear from you soon. We all miss you so much and are so proud of you and all the soldiers. Ya'll all have done such a great job over there. I hope you are safe and able to get some sleep. The weather here has been so nice--all the spring flowers are blooming. Just wish you were here. I hope you got my Easter card. I want to send you a care package, but I need to know what company you are in. I'm not sure, but I think it's C Company, but I don't want to send it without knowing for sure. I hope you've gotten my emails. I've been sending one just about everyday. Several other mothers have emailed me too. It's nice having a little support group of ladies that are going through the same thing with their loved ones. The wedding is only 3 wks away--it's hard to believe it's almost here. I just wish you could be here, but as soon as you get back to Italy I will send you a video of it. We already have about 125 people coming and still have 75-100 more that haven't responded yet. It should be fun. I hope you are getting some rest and I hope you are feeling ok. Please take care of yourself and know that we all love you very much and miss you. Carley has a letter to send you as soon as we get a definite address. Take care, son. Maybe you all will be home soon. Love you bunches, MOM PS HAPPY EASTER!

I wonder if you need brown t-shirts, socks or something because laundry is so hard to do. I wish I could talk personally with someone over there to find out. The 173rd webpage said you would get mail today. I had a dream I got to talk to you on the phone. I woke up so happy. You are so wonderful. I saved the message you left and I can't thank you enough for it. You are the best platoon leader ever and I can tell by the message you care about those guys a lot. I'm sort of jealous that they get to be around you so much. I fixed my computer all by myself :)! It works faster and makes no noise! I was at the hospital all night yesterday (Liz broke her hip :( Nothing else is new...

Hi ADAM ESPENHOVER, Haven't posted a message for a couple of days and just wanted to check it and say hi. Sounds like today is going to be a BIG day, you get mail!! I certainly hope our packages and letters get to you. Your mom and dad were so disappointed that your call went unanswered. They (and the rest of us) are thinking of you all the time and everybody is anxious to hear from you. Just wanted to wish you a Happy Easter. I'm getting a REAL letter off to you today or tomorrow--now that April 15 has come and gone my life is getting back to normal a little bit. I hope the mail delays are over and you will now start receiving letters on a regular basis. Take care, Stay safe, and hope to see you soon. Love, Diane. p.s. Scott says "hey".

Praying all is going well, and trust in our Lord and Savior to bring you home safely, to us soon. A Deck of Cards: From a Soldiers View- A young soldier was in his bunkhouse all alone one Sunday morning over in >Afghanistan. It was quiet that day, the guns and the mortars, and land mines >for some reason hadn't made a noise. > >The young soldier knew it was Sunday, the holiest day of the week. As he was >sitting there, he got out an old deck of cards and laid them out across his >bunk. > >Just then an army sergeant came in and said, "Why aren't you with the rest of >the platoon?" > >The soldier replied, "I thought I would stay behind and spend some time with >the Lord." > >The sergeant said, "Looks like you're going to play cards." > >The soldier said, "No sir, you see, since we are not allowed to have Bibles or >other spiritual books in this country, I've decided to talk to the Lord by >studying this deck of cards." > >The sergeant asked in disbelief, "How will you do that?" > >"You see the Ace, Sergeant, it reminds that there is only one God. > >The Two represents the two parts of the Bible, Old and New Testaments. > >The Three represents the Father, the Son, and the Holy Ghost. > >The Four stands for the Four Apostles: Matthew, Mark, Luke and John. > >The Five is for the five virgins that were ten but only five of them were >glorified. > >The Six is for the six days it took God to create the Heavens and Earth. > >The Seven is for the day God rested after working the six days. > >The Eight is for the family of Noah and his wife, their three sons and their >wives, in which God saved the eight people from the flood that destroyed the >earth for the first time. > >The Nine is for the lepers that Jesus cleansed of leprosy. He cleansed ten but >nine never thanked Him. > >The Ten represents the Ten Commandments that God handed down to Moses on >tablets made of stone. > >The Jack is a reminder of Satan. One of God's first angels, but he got kicked >out of heaven for his sly and wicked ways and is now the joker of eternal >hell. > >The Queen stands for the Virgin Mary. > >The King stands for Jesus, for he is the King of all kings. > >When I count the dots on all the cards, I come up with 365 total, one for >every day of the year. > >There are a total of 52 cards in a deck, each is a week, 52 weeks in a year. > >The four suits represents the four seasons: Spring, Summer, Fall and Winter. > >Each suit has thirteen cards, there are exactly thirteen weeks in a quarter. > >So when I want to talk to God and thank Him, I just pull out this old >deck of cards and they remind me of all that I have to be thankful for." > >The sergeant just stood there and after a minute, with tears in his eyes and >pain in his heart, he said, "Soldier, can I borrow that deck of cards?" > >--Originator Unknown > I thought this was cool, hope you enjoy it too. Stay strong and look out for a couple of packages sent from various people. This weekend is also Mom's recognition celebration @ NAU, but not graduation yet. That'll be until May 09.

SGT. JOEL BEDNAR, HHC.....BABYDOLL! I wanted to tell you some good news...I got a letter from a publishing house who wants to print a few of my poems. I then went to see one of my old profressors at KU about PFC Brandon Arid...your PAO photographer. He likes his works too. OK Back to the poems:) When I arrived here Jake and I were talking about all the talent we "used to have, " and how we were feeling old! He gave me some places to submit my words to, and I recieved a letter today:) Remember when I told you that every creative person needs a MUSE, and that you were mine...I was right! I called Jake and told him, and he laughed that I hadn't done one creative thing the whole time I was with Meza, and how he was like artistic kryptonite:) He said I should tell you also that the poems were ones I had written for you babydoll! It feels weird that now everyone will be able to read my sappy love thoughts about you. I still don't know about that!! Our love is so real, and deep that I don't know if I want to parade my private thoughts of you in public. Jake said we should use any monies gained to buy our house. You know him..always tries to put capitalisim in there somewhere:) Well, that's all for now Sweetie. I love you WHOLE BUNCHIES BABYDOLL!=====Joel's Princess (Sweet Pea)

PFC BRANDON ARID, PAO....Brandon, You don't know me, but my husband is Sgt. Joel Bednar, HHC. I have been looking at the photos you've taken, and wanted to let you know that the talent you've displayed is tremendous! I took a small sample to an old photo journalism professor of mine from college. He thinks you should really consider publishing an anthology of photos from your time in Iraq. It's been years since I've seen talent like yours with a camera..most people don't understand that it takes a "natural eye" to produce the images that last a lifetime! Anyone can take a snap shot...you have an eye that sees beyond the surface. Mark has several publishing friends, and if you'd like I could see if there is an avenue for you to pursue. I don't know how much traing you've had in the area, but you sure shoot like a pro!! From one artist to another... GREAT WORK!!! I just wanted to let you know that...I hate letting talent go unappriciated:) I really enjoy your work, and keep it up! I still enjoy your work even if I haven't seen a pic of my husband amoungst the peices..hehehe! J/K! ---Wendy K. Damman-Bednar

Hello from Southern California...with rain predicted during our Easter Break! This a message for PFC BRIAN J. CORBITT 2/B/1-508 Infantry of the 173rd. We have carefully planned out sending packages with hopes you will receive one, once a week for the past 3 weeks. Unfortunately, you will now be bombarded with packages arriving at one time...like tomorrow. Geez, don't know what you are going to do with the coalition of American and British products, of Altoids mints, Girl Scout cookies,and Easter candy. The post office worker said more packages are being sent during this war. I do see many proud parents, family members and friends sending packages off to Iraq. Hope all is well with you, Brian, and all of your fellow soldiers. You are in our thoughts daily and know you will return with interesting stories and life experiences. Take care...and be safe..

ADAM ESPENHOVER: Hey you,I heard you are getting mail very soon and better yet..a shower! Bonus! I like that you can just type in your name and do a search now for all of your messages...Gee, whoever suggested that idea must be a genius!! :) I showed my 5th graders the pictures on this website today--the boys of course think you are all so awesome jumping out of planes and all, they were drinking it up--the girls think you are all so brave and all that...yadee,yadee, yadee...men in uniforms always melt the girls hearts! Then the boys went back to their desks and started drawing planes and paratroopers with 173rd Airborne Brigade ROCKS on the parachute! TO funny! Seriously tho, we all here think the 173rd is awesome and very brave. Sent another letter off to you-but better yet would be getting a letter from you!! Hope to see one soon.Sent your new field address off to the family with the news you called last Friday telling your dad you are "hanging out with the Kurds, keeping the peace." We pray you are doing well,take care of yourself. Call, email, write. Send a homing pigeon. Just keep in touch however you can!! Love you lots, Mom

This message is for Sgt. Collin Rice- 10th Mountain Division/110th MI BN (attached to 173rd for Operation Iraqi Freedom): Collin, I do hope that you get this message telling you how very proud we all are of you and what all of you guys have accomplished. You are awesome!! I have 100 letters from my students that I am sending your way. Pass them around, so everyone knows what strong support you have back home. The letters speak straight from their 12 year- old hearts- honest and very touching (and laced with humor, as you will see). You also have a number of care packages coming your way- with plenty to share. I am sending one every couple days. And, You will probably get 15 at once, I understand that there is quite a mail back-up. I am SO sorry that we missed your call. We all want so much to talk to you! Please try to call again very soon! Stay strong. Stay safe. We pray for you and all the troops to return safely. We love you very much. Love, Mom, Dad and "the brothers"

1LT David Bernstein (2nd pltn, B-company, 1-508 Infantry) I'm so sorry I missed your call. I went out on a long run and I had no idea you would call me. I guess after you called your parents I didn't expect you to be able to make another call. It was wonderful to hear your voice, but I was so sad I wasn't there to receive your call. I feel so selfish and horrible :( I hope you are getting these messages. I guess you are leaving for another 10 days. You sound exhausted.. but the sound of your voice made my day, week, month. I know you probably waited so long to make that call and I can't believe you thought of me. I'm so sorry :( I wasn't there. I feel like a failure. not to be melodramatic, but geez...I am horrible! You are perfect and keep being a great PL. You are the best (Sec Army told me that one :P haha) from now on I'm going to think of workouts I can do in my room...I love you David. I hope you get mail soon. Love, Alex

"THE STAND" I read in the news, how you made a stand, you marched in the streets of our country's land, trying to say who is wrong or right, telling our country they should not fight; Marching against Marines, like me, here, defending the rights you hold so dear, assuming I love to kill and maim, acting like this is some sort of game; You call yourselves experts on what we should do, on September eleventh, where were you, while thousands of Americans suffered and died, are you trying to say this is something you can abide? Were you at the funerals as they lowered the caskets, maybe you should remove your rose colored glasses? I so, want to feel the comforts of my home, where recently I left! my family alone, yet I'll do my duty in this far off land, so you can march on Washington and make your stand; Do not despise me for what I do, because truth be known, I do it for you, to hopefully free you from terror's arm, so you can have your freedoms, free from harm; What is the price, for the life you live? What is the payment you have to give? Is it starring in a movie, or singing a good song, that has kept you free for all this long? It is men like me, and others too, doing what our country calls us to do, sailing the seas to this far off land, while you stay at home and make your stand; I am not bitter, this is the life I choose, So the rights you express so freely, you will not lose, You may not support me for what I do, But you need to know, I do it for you; When this is over, when we are through, I would rather you just say, thank you, for giving you, the time you had, to march in our streets and make your stand. © 2003 Billy F Dial all rights reserved Used by permission from Billy F Dial 3/25/03

Hi Jeremy, Just a short note to let you know that you are in our thoughts and prayers, as are the rest of our soldiers and their families. We all think of you guys over there often. Sounds like Phoenix and Karyn are busy at Grandmas house and having a good time. Rich called last weekend and said to say "hi" and they think of you often. He's on the "hot shot" fire force right now for 6 months fighting to real major fires in the United States. He'll get home(Washington) in the end of September. Anyway, we are sending all of our love and prayers to you, and hope to here from you soon. Love Uncle Fran and Aunt Di

This is for Josh Blaney from Matthews, NC 173rd/508 Hey Josh, It's mom again. I need to know what unit and company you are in so I can get a care package off to you. If anyone knows Josh and reads this please respond. I need to know some things that you might need, so if you get this and get a chance to call and you talk to Sarah before you talk to me, please give her the information so we can send you some things. I hope all is well over there and you are safe. I know there are still some small battles going on, so please be careful. I hope you are able to get some rest. Where do you sleep? In a tent? Please let us hear from you as soon as you can. Uncle Woody called and we talked last night--he's really concerned about you too. He said to let him know as soon as I hear from you. He wants to send you something too. I'm inviting him to the wedding too. I haven't seen him in a long time and it will be nice to see him and Stephanie. Well, better get to work--take care and know that I love you and miss you! Love, MOM

Hi SGT Thomas Williams, I'm a friend of your Mom's and Ben and I thought that you could use some encouragement while your there in Iraq. I pray that you return safely to Italy and back to the US soon. I'm glad to hear that your spirits are raised because your beginning to see more of the action. I don't know if I would want to be in your shoes, but I applaud you. If you get a chance when you return I want you to listen to this song by R.Kelly (I'm not sure if you like the guy), but listen to the song it's called "A Soldiers Heart". You guys are all the epitome of this song and I hope that each and everyone of you will be able to appreciate it when you return to your respective duty stations. Your hard work and dedication to the 173rd Airborne Division will be a rewarding experience for you and your family, I trust that God will bring you back to them safely and in one peace. Good Luck and I look forward to being at your coming home party! Courtney L. Whyms

The two boxes are the same,share if someone hasn't gotten anything.We'll get together another one soon, maybe you'll be able to let us know of any special requests for you and /or your comrades.I wish we could package a full course Easter dinner for you, I guess Jean's cooking would taste good about now, shit, mine might even be pretty tasty,huh? Your knucklehead brother-in-law sliced his thumb with a utility knife last Sun. I had to take him to ER , ended up with 8 stitches and almost 2 weeks off from golf. He his miserable ,but he can still ride the FAT BOY.

Another message for my son, PFC BRANDON ALTEMUELLER. I am kicking myself that I missed your phone call this morning. Was it really 7:00am my time? I was here....but may have had the shower running or using my blow dryer. There is a 9 hour difference between us now (I think). I was here until around 8:15am, then left....darn!! I wish I could have talked with you. I have mailed you a care package every week. I know mail is slow, but you should start getting them sooner or later. I started including disposable cameras 2 packages ago. There are a total of 4 on the way to you. It is just taking a long time to get there, but that is to be expected. I just put 2 more cameras in the mail today. Take lots of pictures. I see on the news, pictures/video of the Iraqi people and the Kurdish people celebrating and dancing in the streets. It is heartbreaking to see how impoverished they have lived for so long. There is enough oil coming out of that country for all of them to be millionaires.....what a shame..... I read a story about the 173rd that said the Kurds lined the streets of Irbil as you guys were leaving and gave the soldiers a "ticker tape parade" of sorts. It brought tears to my eyes.....I am proud that you were one of the heroes that helped save them. You are making a difference.....giving something back and making the world a better place. I hope I am here next time you call. I love you, and I am proud of you. Stay safe.....and come home soon.....we have that heroes welcome home party and will need an honored guest. Love, Mom :-)

You have always had the life I wanted. I'm so happy for you. Your dreams are coming true. Yes, I know you have had a long and hard road to go down. But, you have gone above all and concured your problems in life. I have been watching this war sence it started. After I found out you jumped in over Iraq. I have not been watching the TV as much.

Although Autumn is doing very well at all of the tasks given her. She received two 3rd, and two 4th place ribbions in her horse show!

Y'all are the best, and once again have proved it. SSG Nesmith, thanks for everything. You are one of the best NCO's a soldier could have, and you prove it time and time again. If I could name everyone, I would, because everyone deserves recognition. Seeing as how the photos don't include the support companies, and we all know they couldn't do much without you.

To: SSG VOLINE, STEPHEN J. Baby I love you SSSSOOOOOO Much!!! Things are going good here. Work's going good too. I have talked to your mom a few times ... I know you will be happy. I am not sure if you will get this but I wrote so many letters (almost every day), and I heard you weren't getting any mail yet. I also sent you a box; so did your mom and even my squadron did too. So you can pig out if you ever get them. Everyday I make sure I know what you guys are doing. Please be safe. I heard of people calling home from the 173rd so I am hoping you call soon. But if I am not home and you talk to your mom that will even make me happy..just to know you are doing alright. Stay safe. My prayers are with you. I love you and miss you so much!!! Hope to talk to you soon hadsome. XOXOXOXOXOXOXO Love always and forever, Rach

173rd AIRBORNE BRIGADE---I just called Congressman Harold Ford's office in DC about your mail situation. The Pentagon is aware that some units have not received any mail. Word is that since the situation is calming down somewhat in many areas, the mail should start to reach all units. Please know that the American public is grateful to you as service people, and I personally hope that when the mail start flowing, you all have so much mail that you won't even have time to read it all. Take care of each other---we are all looking forward to your safe return. Sincerely, Margaret Pellett If you are reading this and know Pvt.

You need to get back here soon if I have to go shopping with her one more time I'll lose it! You owe me big time for that torture alone! does this remind you of someone "How about this color? Does that fabric feel breezy?" Who the hell knows if fabric is breezy?!Fabric's breezy when you have a hole in it! I can't handle much more.

They're just all stupid, and you know how I hate ignorant men! He is right though..he tried to marry me off to someone in 8th grade!

I think it's very important that our soldiers know we love and support them. JASAN WEAVER (1/508th) I LOVE YOU! I am sending you letters and packages. I hope and pray you guys start receiving them. Take care.

I feel bad for perhaps letting you down. At least you are around your wonderful platoon and maybe Tom is making you laugh more than I can :) I am so thankful you are ok. I am guessing you didn't get any of the mail I sent to the normal address. Perhaps they will forward it all! :) Today I am sending off the first things to your address in the desert.

Daniel Bartlett 427 BOX2637 APO AE09630 1/508 SETAF (IRAQ) DAN, I AM VERY PROUD OF YOU! It is a selfless mission that you and all of your fellow soldiers undertake for your country, the Iraqis and the people of the free world. Even if you never fire a shot, I know that you have to consider your mortality, and the possible consequences of facing the enemy, and the prosecution of this war. I am sure that you are going through a metamorphous, and will come back home a man who has faced himself during this time, and understand the value of life, as few 19-year-old young men know. We never stop watching the news, so that we can stay in touch with as many of the actions that the 173rd AIRBORNE may be involved in. I know we only have limited knowledge of all of the activities, and whenever I hear about those actions I have a great sense of pride that you may be helping us all, mixed with an overwhelming fear that you should somehow be injured. It's a Dads curse! Joyce says that she is getting too many gray hairs while you are over there, so please come home soon, and in one piece so that she can give you some noogies on your head. Savannah, and Marina never stop asking if you are Okay. We assure them that you are. By the way, We have you on many prayer lists in the Melbourne Area. I hope you feel them lift you up. Remember the three rules we discussed? 1) Keep your head down. 2) Follow your Sergeant's orders. 3) Don't be a hero. Don't worry about number three anymore. You are already my hero!!! Come home soon, or at least back to your favorite person in Italy. Both are safe. Call if you can. I love you very much, approve of the man I know as my son, and am extremely proud of you!!! Dad

It makes me feel proud to see the herd humping the desert. You guys are part of the best infantry brigade in the world. Your history is one of bravery and devotion. I know you will carry on the tradition of the past. Just remember that the Herd is so good we only need a Brigade, and let's not forget our brothers who never came home. Keep low, keep cool, drive on, and God Bless The Rock. 1/503 67-68. PS- Stay away from the 4th Infantry-we had to bail them out every time they got contact. Airborne All The Way Steve Monroe

We also have a news story about Cpt. Baus taking one platoon to City Hall to "clear and control" the complex of buildings that makes up City Hall. Ben Baer, Eleanor's son, sends you his best wishes. Glen H. and Yo are dutifully saving Wall Street Journals and New York Times for you. We love you and are hoping that guard duty at City Hall will be extremely uneventful for all of you.

Not much going on around here, just doing odds and ends and hangin' out as Valerie puts it. I didn't post you a message yesterday cause I got home late and did't feel like fighting with the computer. Dad said he sent you a package from his plant. Everyone there brought in stuff for you and a couple other people stationed in Iraq. Remember we love you and are thinking of you often. Call when you can. If you can't get a hold of mom at home call dad's house. Just as long as someone hears that you are alright. LOVE AND MISS YOU BUNCHES!!-- The Big Sis and the Baby Sis

Jordan - Well, I have been trying to come up something articulate, poetic, or profound to say, but as of yet nothing has come to mind. However, as the big sister of another army brat, keep this in mind. You are one of the only people I have ever heard my brother say he had to keep up with or challenged him to do better. As the big sister who has lost the height advantage, no longer can out run him, and can't in any way, shape, or form physically out perform the younger sibling, I need someone here to keep him in check. Therefore, you must keep yourself safe. What - you wanted serious? :-) O.k. Don't loot. I know it's tempting and that marble vase would look great on your Mom's table, but don't do it. :-) Seriously: You and your family are in our hearts and thoughts constantly. Love you all.

Been keeping up with what you are doing. Not much news on the northern front that talks about the 173rd. Only brief items here and there on the cable news channels. We are all very proud of you present-day HERD troopers. It warms our hearts to see you gathering such honor for the Brigade. The few views of your jump that were shown on the news has brought back many memories. We are behind you "all the way." I put many suggested items for soldiers in a large container at a local supermarket. We're not getting any info on where to send items for the 173rd. I'd much prefer to send items to all of you . . . instead of some unknown soldier or marine. I guess it works out in the end. Others are sending things that make it to you. The support at home is amazing. I don't think they're even giving much air time to protesters and demonstrators. The media realizes that the VAST majority of Americans don't want to hear that silliness. The really great thing is that people realize we have men and women on the ground . . . it's no time for dissention. Take care, and be safe. Airborne!, Jerry

PSALM 46 God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble. Therefore we will not fear though the earth should change, though the mountains shake in the heart of the sea; though its waters roar and foam, though the mountains tremble with its tumult. There is a river whose streams make glad the city of God, the holy habitation of the Most High. God is in the midst of her, she shall not be moved; God will help her right early. The nations rage, the kingdoms totter; He utters His voice, the earth melts. The LORD of hosts is with us; the God of Jacob is our refuge. Come, behold the works of the LORD, how He has wrought desolations in the earth. He makes wars cease to the end of the earth; He breaks the bow, and shatters the spear, He burns the chariots with fire! Be still, and know that I am God. I am exalted among the nations, I am exalted in the earth! The LORD of hosts is with us; the God of Jacob is our refuge.

For Duane (aka Lnlyrdr)/1-508 Alpha - obviously it's Mom, Sweetie. Chiara was so thrilled to receive your phone call. I made arrangements for her mail to you to be picked up and mailed from Post - hope that it gets to you - just as I hope and pray that my mail has been getting to you. We receive contradictory instructions as to letters and packages. I have not yet mailed a package because all official direction I've been given has told me not to but maybe I'll take a chance and do so anyway. Remember that we LOVE you, we're PROUD of you and we SUPPORT you. - God bless and love, Mom and Big Al Dad

Sgt Ben Keener B/1-508th,You are constantly in my thoughts and prayers. I finally applied for a passport so if you don't come back state side soon after you get back I will be visiting you in Italy. So other's have received phone calls from their kids...I still seem to be waiting. Poor Clay didn't answer the phone the other day. Needless to say he won't make that choice again. Hell hath no wrath like a really desparate worried MOM. Looks like we may get snow again this weekend. Normal weather for spring here, you wouldn't know it to hear people talk. Please call night or day, leave a message at least so I can hear your voice. Love Mom & Clay... PS Chris is so jealous your going to have the medal for a combat jump, says he would reenlist if they could guarantee he would be shipped out. I do not understand, but thank God for those of you that feel that way and follow your hearts. Where would this world be, if we all chose to let someone else do the dirty work and fight our battle? We would be giving up our strength, our power and most importantly our duty as a large powerful county to help those who are unable to help themselves.I love you and am so proud of you and all those that fight this battle with you.

Know in your heart you are doing the right thing. If you get a chance to meet a local citizen then take the time to get to know them get an address so 20 years from now you can communicate with them. You all should be proud of the great service you are doing for your country,yourselves,your future, and the future of Iraq. We here are so very proud of you. I hope you are out of there soon.

ADAM ESPENHOVER-B.Co-508th----Dear Adam, Your dad just called and told me you had just called him. We were looking so forward to your call but knew it would be bittersweet. I am so so sorry Adam about Steiny. You dad felt he had to tell you now knowing you were ok and safe, and it gives me comfort to know a chaplain is coming to talk to you too. I know it is such a numbing shock.We felt it to when we got the news. I wish I could be there to hug you and help console you and just be there to listen to you talk about him. I know you probably have so many great memories and pictures in your mind of him, and most likely alot you don't even want me to know about! This is so hard for us to know you are in pain and feeling so helpless for you right now.Steiny loved you like a brother Adam, and he would watch your back for you like you are doing for the other soldiers there. We are grieving for your loss and for such a good guy we will miss. He called here after you were deployed to see how I was doing. What an awesome kind thing to do. He called Ash and said he was suppose to watch out for her now! I debated putting this on a message board ..this isn't the way I wanted to extend my sympathy and my love for you, but your dad said you had gotten our other messages from here, and I want you to know how much we love you, miss you and care for your wellbeing and a regular letter from us may be weeks for you. We still have not gotten your letter about being deployed to Iraq. Adam's family knows you are there with them in your thoughts and love for him in spirit. It has to give them some peace to know Adam touched so many lives and he was a good friend, a good person to others. Come home safe hon.They need to hear from you too, you were so close to Adam, it will give them some closeness to him. I can't tell you enough how much we love you and hurt for you and for his mom and dad right now. Please talk to others and the chaplain to help you through this and take care of yourself. You have so much to come home for and Steiny is looking out for you now. I know he is there watching over you, he loved you Adam. Our special prayers for you and Steiny, Love, Mom

To: Specialist Adam Mason Hi'ya Beamer, I hope you are well, we are all thinking of you. Thought you might enjoy this article. Love ya buddy. Sent: Monday, March 31, 2003 9:43 PM Subject: Fw: Article from England An Article from England. No matter what your views on President Bush's statement of upcoming war, this, from an English journalist, is very interesting. Just a word of background, for those of you who aren't familiar with the UK's Daily Mirror. This is a notoriously left-wing daily that is normally not supportive of the Colonials across the Atlantic. ********************************************************************** Tony Parsons Daily Mirror September 11, 2002 One year ago, the world witnessed a unique kind of broadcasting - - the mass murder of thousands, live on television. As a lesson in the pitiless cruelty of the human race, September 11 was up there with Pol Pot's Mountain of Skulls in Cambodia, or the skeletal bodies stacked like garbage in the Nazi concentration camps. An unspeakable act so cruel, so calculated and so utterly merciless that surely the world could agree on one thing - nobody deserves this fate. Surely there could be consensus: The victims were truly innocent, the perpetrators truly evil. But to the world's eternal shame, 9/11 is increasingly seen as America's comeuppance. Incredibly, anti-Americanism has increased over the last year. There has always been a simmering resentment to the USA in this country; too loud, too rich, too full of themselves, and so much happier than Europeans - but it has become an epidemic. And it seems incredible to me. More than that, it turns my stomach. America is this country's greatest friend and our staunchest ally. We are bonded to the US by culture, language and blood. A little over half a century ago, around half a million Americans died for our freedoms, as well as their own. Have we forgotten so soon? And exactly a year ago, thousands of ordinary men, women and children - not just Americans, but from dozens of countries, were butchered by a small group of religious fanatics. Are we so quick to betray them? What touched the heart about those who died in the Twin Towers and on the planes, was that we recognized them. Young fathers and mothers, somebody's son and somebody's daughter, husbands, wives, and children, some unborn. And these people brought it on themselves? Their nation is to blame for their meticulously planned slaughter? These days you don't have to be some dust-encrusted nut job in Kabul or Karachi or Finsbury Park to see America as the Great Satan. The anti-American alliance is made up of self-loathing liberals who blame the Americans for every ill in the Third World, and conservatives suffering from power-envy, bitter that the world's only superpower can do what it likes without having to ask permission. The truth is that America has behaved with enormous restraint since September 11. Remember, remember - Remember the gut-wrenching tapes of weeping men phoning their wives to say, "I love you," before they were burned alive. Remember those people leaping to their deaths from the top of burning skyscrapers. Remember the hundreds of firemen buried alive. Remember the smiling face of that beautiful little girl who was on one of the planes with her mum. Remember, remember - And realize that America has never retaliated for 9/11 in anything like the way it could have. So a few al-Qaeda tourists got locked up without a trial in Camp X-ray? Pass the Kleenex. So some Afghan wedding receptions were shot up after they merrily fired their semi-automatics in a sky full of American planes? A shame, but maybe next time they should stick to confetti. AMERICA could have turned a large chunk of the world into a parking lot. That it didn't is a sign of strength. American voices are already being raised against attacking Iraq - that's what a democracy is for. How many in the Islamic world will have a minute's silence for the slaughtered innocents of 9/11? How many Islamic leaders will have the guts to say that the mass murder of 9/11 was an abomination? When the news of 9/11 broke on the West Bank, those freedom- loving Palestinians were dancing in the street. America watched all of that - and didn't push the button. We should thank the stars that America is the most powerful nation in the world. I still find it incredible that 9/11 did not provoke all-out war. Not a "war on terrorism." A real war. The fundamentalist dudes are talking about "opening the gates of hell," if America attacks Iraq. Well, America could have opened the gates of hell like you wouldn't believe. The US is the most militarily powerful nation that ever strode the face of the earth. The campaign in Afghanistan may have been less than perfect and the planned war on Iraq may be misconceived. But don't blame America for not bringing peace and light to these wretched countries. How many democracies are there in the Middle East, or in the Muslim world? You can count them on the fingers of one hand - assuming you haven't had any chopped off for minor shoplifting. I love America, yet America is hated. I guess that makes me Bush's poodle. But I would rather be a dog in New York City than a Prince in Riyadh. Above all, America is hated because it is what every country wants to be - rich, free, strong, open, optimistic. Not ground down by the past, or religion, or some caste system. America is the best friend this country ever had and we should start remembering that. Or do you really think the USA is the root of all evil? Tell it to the loved ones of the men and women who leaped to their death from the burning towers. Tell it to the nursing mothers whose husbands died on one of the hijacked planes, or were ripped apart in a collapsing skyscraper. And tell it to the hundreds of young widows whose husbands worked for the New York Fire Department. To our shame, George Bush gets a worse press than Saddam Hussein. Once we were told that Saddam gassed the Kurds, tortured his own people and set up rape-camps in Kuwait. Now we are told he likes Quality Street. Save me the range center, Oh Mighty One! Remember, remember, September 11 - One of the greatest atrocities in human history was committed against America. No, do more than remember. Never forget.

Support for you guys is unlike any I've ever seen, now that Saddam's regime has fallen. Still a dangerous time with the mopping-up operations which will take some time. Perhaps France and Germany will provide some troops to assist in this. As an old combat blaster from Nam, very proud of you guys and the job you're doing. Here in Nashville, at the CMT awards this past week, all the country music stars applauded you guys and booed the Dixie Chicks. In my time, the country rooted for the bad guys and booed us. You've turned that around and done us proud. Recon HHC 2/503rd 173rd '66-'67.

Dear Kristopher, I am sitting here at almost 3 a.m. our time and I can't sleep again. Been brousing through the 173rd web site and found some photos of you, Thank God your safe. I see your Mom wrote a note today also. I can't believe the way ypu and the rest of the Military are KICKING some Iraqi BUTT. I am so proud to be your Aunt, Kris you are a HERO and I love you very much. I hope your doing well and that you stay safe. I like the idea of patting your chest 3 times so we know your safe. I watch MSNBC almost all day in the hopes of catching a glimpse of you. The news here is so vivid of what is going on over there. I can't imagine the things you are seeing. I can't wait till you bring yourself home safe and sound. I want to hear the stories, keep a journal if you can. You are history in the making and its just amazing. I pray for you and all of the troops everyday. I check on your Mom often to let her know I love her too. She is staying strong, but you know Moms, we have to worry its our job. I know the Leo in you will bring you home safe and sound in one piece. Stay safe and keep you head down. Love you lots. Hugs to you.............Love Aunt Kerry and Girls

Kris, Dad & I are so proud of you, we cannot find the words that would honor you and the rest of the 173rd. Now that Baghdad is free, I'm sure the evil force will come your way. Remember your training and you will be safe. By the way Dad has had 2 fires in the last 3 shifts, you know how those firecats are. We have found tons of pictures of Iraq. God bless you son, God bless your friends, God bless American. We miss you so, if you see a camera, get in front of it and tap your chest 3 times so we know you are safe and warm. xoxoxoxofrom Jacenya, she has mailed you a package of art work.

The Greatest Love The greatest love I was ever shown, Was given me by those unknown. Whose love for all of those like me, Was given without vanity, Was given freely without remorse, Free-flying into the battle course. With courage fighting our enemy, So our land would always home the free. So my own children can live and grow, My children that they did not know. Those brave warriors, Whose lives were lost. All paying the terrible, ultimate cost. The greatest heroes, woman and man, Who gave their lives in a foreign land, Whose last sight was the desert sand, All led to glory by God's tender hand. Never again to see this sweet land, That they so loved, that they made their stand. Never again, to take a breath free, Or to feel the touch of family, They gave up their lives so that it remained free, For they so loved this great country. With pride we stand and voice what we want, While overlooking soldier souls haunt, Smiling while children laugh and play, In freedom growing day by day. All because of those unknown, Who's greatest wish was to just come home. I pray that maybe, when they take their last breath, That they closed their eyes, And just before death, Took the vision to glory, Of America green, And smiled when thinking of those unseen. The greatest love I was ever shown, Was given me by those unknown. THANK YOU!

Hi ADAM ESPENHOVER. I wrote you a note yesterday right after this board was turned back on but I see it didn't post. Your area is a little more in the news today. I don't know if that is good or bad. We certainly want to get a glimpse of you but also, no news is good news. We have been seeing pictures on the internet of the various sleeping arrangements for some of the troops, everything from dust storms to mud puddles. I bet that hard old cot won't seem so bad once you get back to base. I think of you everyday. Keep safe and remember how much everybody misses, loves and supports you. Hope you can call or write home soon--I know it will bring much relief to your mom, dad and sister. Take care. Love, Diane

Hello this April day from BOISE CITY, OKLAHOMA for AUSTIN FRENCH. We have you in our thoughts and prayers on this day of celebration in Baghdad, though it sounds more unsettled in the northern part of Iraq. It is good to see the citizens welcome you and thank you for their liberation, and I am sure that it is good for all of the troops morale. There was a big celebration for the support of our troops today at Ground Zero in New York City, the place where so much of this started. Be well, be safe, be strong.

This is for my precious son, PFC Daniel Bartlett, II Hi Babe! We miss you. I've sent a few letters and so have Grandma and Grandpa. Grandpa says he writes you letters every day and sends them. I hope you are getting all the mail. I can't tell you how proud I am of you and your fellow soldiers. When I watched the first night on the news of all of you jumping out of the airplane into northern Iraq, well, not only did the tears flow, but my heart filled with such pride. All week they talked about you and all the training you have had. I'm very proud of you. Shane is down in Baghdad in the 3rd ID in an Abrahms tank (sorry about the spelling if it's wrong). Nick is in the 101st Airborne and, from what Aunt Cathy says, was one of them at the airport in Baghdad. Grandma, Grandpa, Grandma Kay, Aunt Cathy, Clint, Aunt Cher, Jessica, Randi, Hailey all send their love to you. Terry told me about this website. I hope you have the capabilities to read the messages from us while you are in Iraq. We love you and miss you something fierce. Love you!!!!! Ma, Gary, Michael, Terry, Jamie PS Rocky sends his love and says he may or may not be coming there. He hasn't heard for 100% sure yet. That was as of last night. Talked with him after I got home from work. - Love Ma!

This is for PFC Josh Blaney. Hey Son, I pray everyday for your safety and hope you will be home soon. If there is anyway you can get to a phone, please give me or Sarah a call. If not, then please write us to let us know you are ok. We all miss you and everytime something comes on TV about Northern Iraq, I'm always looking to see if I see you. I think I found a picture of you when you were on the plane before you jumped into Iraq. It looks like you from the side. I made a copy and I'll keep it until you get home and you can look at it. Please stay safe and hope you are getting some sleep and eating ok. We all miss you and would love to hear from you. Everybody here is doing good. The wedding plans are coming along -- only 4 more weeks. During the ceremony I'm going to ask for everyone to say a prayer for you and your buddies.

SSG Jeremy Baum- Thought we'd write again to tell you that we pray for you, our troops, and our nation every day. We are so proud of all of our servicemen and want everyone to know it. It warms our hearts to see the liberation of Iraq and all the happy people cheering for the American troops and the fall of the Iraqi regime. Though I'm sure there is much work left to accomplish, it is still bittersweet. Seeing all of the statues and paintings being destroyed brings us happiness. This man was egotistical and the people that supported him idolic. How could a man make so much money off of his country while leaving 99% of the country in poverty. Not to mention the executions and sick torturing that prisoners received under his leadership. What a sick individual to have his face strewn everywhere as if he were God. We serve the only God and this God wants to silence this evil man and bring his regime to an end. Gavin and Jenna are getting big!! Gavin is 2 1/2 and he is 38 inches tall (I believe) and he weighs 30 lbs. Jenna is 5 months old and she weighed in yesterday at 15 lbs at the doctor's office, and she is 26 inches long. She is the smilest, cheeriest baby ever! We will talk to you soon and pray that you can go home and see your family soon--THEY NEED YOU TOO!! We pray that you get out of there soon and that we will be able to see you soon as well. Take care and GOD BLESS!! Matt, Michelle, Gavin & Jenna Wallmow

I just talked to Jenny B. and told her about this site and also gave her the new field address. I see there is alot of celebrating in the southern part of Iraq today. I have to say it makes me somewhat nervous what is happening up north because the focus has been so much on Baghdad; other than your jump and the few days after that, there hasn't been alot of northern front news. I type it in for a search but it is mostly the same. But they say no news is good news. We still have not gotten your letter.Tomorrow!!??? I got a neat letter from one of the mothers of a soldier in the 508th-his picture is online and was in the DSM paper too...he was having a smoke right after the jump-Rodney Cameron-do you know him by any wild chance?I emailed his mom to say it was a great picture. I hope to hear from you soon..I got the pictures in the mail today from your dad that were taken when we picked you up in DSM this summer after boot camp.It was so good to see those! There is a great one of you and Ash.I am going to put your picture and address in the Carroll paper too.By the way, it sounds like your dad is getting a different computer so you should get messages from him soon. That will be so nice when you finally have email access. I love you and miss hearing from you. Be safe.I know you are a well trained intelligent soldier,and with the best, but I am looking forward to the huge hug (and party!)you are going to get when you get back to the states!

Sorry for the delay, but I found out about this site only a few days ago...Wish I had seen you before you all left, but, oh well, I'm sure there'll be another chance soon. It's kinda weird to write msgs here 'cause it seems to be on the Big Brother, where everyone can read other people's notes, but it's also a great chance to give you guys all of our support. We obviously can just somehow immagine what you guys have been going through, since the war of who's fighting is a lot different from the one of who's at home watching the news and listening only to what the medias allow you to know. All I know is that I really hope you're all ok and, no matter how long it's gonna take (hopefully not too long), you'd better get your butts back alright, ok? Our thoughts and prayers are with you all. Hugs and kisses to Freeborn, Fabion and Jason (I certainly spelled it all wrong). Your friend always, Connie

Since I am retired and have no money I am forwarding the bill to Italy for payment. If this treatment is typical of the other three, she will be sick for seven to ten days. After that she will bug me for all the undone projects of the past ten years. Some things never change. Phil I am very proud of having you as a son-in-law. I know that my daughter will always be loved and respected. I know that my three grands will never want for love and attention. In these days of child abuse and neglect, Sarah and I have no fear. We love you both and expect that you will pay all of our bills as we reach mid-age and beyond. In recent days I have talked with both Lee and Linda. They are proud of you and your accompishments (one being marrying a wonderful girl-my only daughter). Now the bad news. The lawn-mover which I restored. It has died! I have taken it apart, a new transmission will be needed. This will cost you approximately $325.00. You can pay when you return home. Eric is nagging me about repairs needed at his house. He wants me to rebuild his chimney, replace rotten siding, and replace his deck rail. Since I have nothing to do, (all of Sarah's projects) he wants it done NOW! He will probably want me to pay for the materials. Speaking of Sarah's projects, do you remember the azalea bed in front of the house? It is now in the back yard. These plants have been there for the better part of twenty five years. Transplanting each plant required better than 1.5 hours. Now back to the lawn mover. My Snapper blew an engine! As usual Sarah wants to buy a new one ($2350), I want to replace the engine as I did for your mover. Hopefully, I will finally win a battle for the first time in my married life. Beth called today. She has been spending your money- flowers. Beth really has surprised me with her desire to have a beautiful yard. They have had some cold night, hopefully the plants were not killed. Sarah is up to her old habits again, saving money. Once you'all were in Italy she could not wait to purchase a computer. Look at all the money she could save, e-mails and opposed to telephone calls. To my knowledge she has not been to the basement one time since Beth set up the computer. Saving money in Georgia! Take care of yourself and don't worry about the kids. If anyone will take care of their kids its Beth. About the money you owe me, don't loose any sleep over it, we can settle-up upon your return. My computer skills are like your math skills-they don't exist. I can not find the "spell check". As you shall see, spelling is not my game and to top that, I don't know what my game is my game. Sex!

Glen Hays is threatening to call the Commercial Appeal and send them out to do a profile of you for the local news. I have not decided whether I want to talk to a reporter or not, but I might. It would mean you would have a little newspaper article for your children and grandchildren to marvel at years from now, so I'm somewhat inclined to over let it happen. You and your buddies---please take care of yourselves up there in the north. Judging from what we see on the news, you are travelling in beautiful country. Hope you and your buddies are in good enough condition to notice the scenery every once in a while. Your presence in Iraq was announced at a local garden club recently.

Word from the chemistry contest is that Alex placed well enough to get invited to the banquet, but we won't know exactly how he did until May 2, when the awards are presented. Eleanor Baer sends her best wishes, and so does Peter Mckelroy's mother---both called to ask about you. Winston Churchill advised, "If you're going through hell, keep going."

Hello Pvt John B Pellett Able Company 2/503rd. It is raining here in Knoxville Tenn. That is good for the new planting we are doing. The kids are doing TCAPS this week. Do you remember those from elementary and middle school. They will be glad when they are over. Matt just got an inviation to visit the middle school he will be going to next year. Caroline is riding her bike as fast as she can around the circle. Beating the clock each time. Scott is busy working. I am watching news, cleaning bathrooms, scanning this web site, running erands and generally doing nothing. I hope you are safe and well. I search the pictures daily, but have yet to pick you out. The photo man emailed us on this web site and I thing he said he was with 2/503rd so if you smile enough I bet he would take a picture of you. Love and pray for you daily. Love Aunt Joan , Uncle Scott, Matt and Caroline

Hopefully, Cindy will respond to my email soon. I miss you bro. We have never gone this long without communicating before. Not even when you were going to school in Reno. It kind of freaks me out. Well, tell every service person you know or meet that everyone back home is praying for them. God willing, you will all be home soon. All my love, Sis

Afternoon, Just a note from Boston, Ma. letting all of you know that you are in all my thoughts and prayers. Every day I go on line to see the photo updates then read anything new articles posted. When the news broke about the howitzers put to very good use brought a smile to my face. My husband did 2 tours of Nam with the "Herd" he knows what you are doing feeling and experiencing. We have a candle in the window and a yellow ribbon around the tree, they stay there until all of you are home. Even at Mass on Sunday there were continued prayers for the men. On the lighter side it snowed again here hopefully this is the time it will snow for the year but this is New England so if you don't like the weather just wait it will change fast enough. With love to all of you men Rose

Hi John Nystrom, and the rest of the 173rd Airborne. Me and my family are very proud of the performance of the entire coaliiton force. Most of the USA is glued to the TV waiting for the fall of Saddam's band of madmen. Good luck, God's speed, and safe return prayers to all of you! Angie talked to me yesterday (07APR03)about doing a brake job on the car. She is in good spirits and is excited about Dee and my trip to Italy. I have been following Ken Dilanie's "embedded reporter" stories as well as viewing pictures on http://www.173airborne.com/iraq.htm web site. Take care, and remain focused Love Steve

Dear Donald Adair, I just want you to know that we're still thinking about you here. I really just want to get to talk to you more than anything just to see how you are, but this is the closest alternative that I have.Prom is this weekend, like it matters, but you always wanted to know what was going on with me and I did get a baby blue tux. Trey got a yellow one because he couldn't find an orange one. I didn't get to get the lamborghini, of course. It was too expensive and no one within 5 or 10 states had one to rent. Anyways I hope you get
