Have been following a soldier’s arrival and settling-in in northern Iraq, through emails.

This soldier is married with four kids. We met on an airplane, sitting together on a flight from Dallas to Nashville last month, I returning from Abilene to report on our work and the desert khaki heading home to spend four days with family before shipping out.

I promised I’d keep this soldier from the Air National Guard in my prayers.

Oh, did I mention? This soldier is a woman. She said her mission in life was to be a wife, mother and soldier.

Word a prayer to wing its way to God on her behalf.

What do you think?
