I spoke with my son Matthew just moments ago! He's doing well, says it's very cold but he's got some hand warmers. He's safe for now, getting ready for a new mission where he'll be out in the field and away from phone contact for the next month or 2. I can't imagine 2 months without hearing his voice. He hasn't received any of the packages that have been sent yet from me only a couple from his wife. Now he won't get those until he's done with this mission :( I guess he'll get Christmas really late! I don't think my homemade fudge is going to stay fresh that long damn it. Hopefully the rest will be fine. I don't know how much more of this I can take, I need this deployment over with, I'm not cut out to be the mother of a Marine.
If any of you readers would like to know of a great organization that helps send goodies to all our soldiers you can look up Operation Adopt a Ghost on FB (her website is under construction) this lady is amazing in the way he gives to our troops. Another one is www.anysoldier.com but check out adopt a ghost first Linda is amazing and is trying to get my sons platoon adopted out.
