I got an email from him today.  It is a little disturbing to me.  Here is a little bit of what he said.

Well I am back.I waited to write because did not want you to tell the ladies that we got hit with an IED and small arms the night I came home.(back to Fallujah) We are all ok.I am a little harder of hearing in my right ear but it is slowly coming back.It was a long ride home.We were all really tired and worn out.I had about 5hrs of sleep in 2 days and when I got back I got another 3 before I had to go debrief.So I had a total of 8hrs in 3 days until I got a whole night sleep.You want to talk about tired.And here is something rather funny.We had a passenger in my truck and I was worrying about him and knocked my M16 off and it got run over by a humvee.It works fine

So, as you can see, I am really anxious to talk with him.  I hope that he calls me tomorrow.  He said that he was going to try and call soon.  Thanks for everyones prayers so far.  Keep up the great work because as you can see, he needs all he can get.

Here is a new picture that he sent me.  Boy does he look tired.

Thanks for listening.  Sometimes I just need to vent a little.  The stress will get to me if I don't.

Traci -

Sweetheart....as you well know an IED can be just about anything....small arms fire is a scary thing, but at least you know he's safe....lack of sleep is common honey....to be honest - he looks like every NCO I know when they're over there....his M16 should be fine - might need new handguards, but fine nonetheless....

Sweetie - I wish I could just give you a great big hug right now.... :hugz:
I realize how trite it sounds - but please, try not to worry....you're hearing from him....
GW was on his way back from Baghdad before I heard from him....

Send him a ton of love & hugs from Ft. Bliss....we're still praying for him sweetie - and you - and the boys....

You come here and vent whenever you want to!

Feel free to email me [email protected] or on AIM - Deb10Jan or PM me anytime - I'm going to PM you my phone numbers too --- ANYTIME day or night, you feel free to call.....

Lots of love & hugs to you Traci - thank you for your sacrifice...

Traci, I wont even pretend to know what to say. I appreciate the sacrifice that your family makes to keep mine free.

He will most definately be in my prayers as well as you and the family. Do keep us updated and have faith.

I know that he is in good hands. He has been with the Marines, and they have been taking good care of them. I have not gotten a call from him yet, but I know that he will call in the next day or two. I am just anxious to hear what happened. He has been pretty faithful about calling every 3-4 days. I talked with him on Tuesday so I figure maybe today or tomorrow. Thanks again for all the prayers. I try and keep everyone here in mine as well.

I got a call from him when we were at Chuckie Cheese. I took ds3 there for his birthday. The kids bagged school because they were suppose to leave early to go to my mom's camper. She decided not to leave until this evening, so we went in to Chuckie Cheese. I got to talk with him for about 30 minutes so It was great. He still sounds tired, but he sounds ok. He said that it is realatively quiet right now in Fallujah. The kids all got to talk with him, so that was a cool thing too. ds1 always seems to miss the calls so it was nice that he got to talk to him. Well I feel better having talked with him. Although I still worry about him. (he tells me that I worry way too much)
