The War Comes Close to Home

The reality of the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan are never far from our thoughts. We have spent time, treasure and prayers on these young men and women from the beginning. We have written to thousands, sent packages to hundreds, "adopted" many, become good friends with quite a few, and family to some. But, hearing that one of the soldiers MIA in Iraq, PFC Thomas Lowell Tucker, is from Madras - a teeny town near our small town, a town where K went to high school, the same high school Tucker went to - makes it even closer to home. We don't know the Tuckers, but we have walked in the same places, enjoyed the same things, and that makes us feel close to them now...and, helpless to make things any different.

Please keep our missing soldiers PFC Thomas Lowell Tucker and PFC Kristian Menchaca and their families in your thoughts and prayers.
