My niece’s husband (is ‘nephew-in-law’ a valid relationship?) left Fort Hood, TX yesterday with his unit to begin his third tour in Iraq.  He leaves a four-year-old son and a pregnant wife behind to await his return.  He’s a good guy.  I’ve known him since he was in high school (before he even met my niece) and I’ve seen him grow in the Army in ways he’s probably not even aware of.  He loves his men and he’ll do what he has to do ensure their safety.  Any prayers you can send up for Sgt. Fred and his unit will be appreciated.
