I know it is going to be hard to leave your daughter and the rest of your family,but I felt like I should shout out a great big THANK YOU for all you do for our country.
I hope you will have a wonderful Father's Day even though you will be gone to fight for this country. Again I say THANK YOU and all the others who are giving up their time with their families to fight for us.
Amen to Karen's comment. Thank you for the sacrifice you are making for our country and our freedom. May God be with you and your family during your deployment. Thank you to each and everyone of our military who devote their time to protecting us. God Bless You!
Thank you for all you do. I used to live in Pike County, as did my parents for many years. My 26 yr old daughter, Brandi, just returned from her 2nd tour to Iraq last week. She is an MP in the Army. We know how hard this is on the soldier and the family left behind. Our prayers will be with you and the whole unit. Take care and God Bless. Kandy Antich and family

Currently deployed to the area onboard the USS Dwight D. Eisenhower
We are flying F/A 18 Super Hornets in Afghanistan everyday to provide air support for the troops on the ground. It's amazing that 100 miles off the coast of Pakistan we are launching our jets into the war zone dropping bombs day and night. The American Media does not act like the war is still going on, but I have been fighting in support of Operation Endurign Freedom for 5 months now and our jets are still dropping bombs everyday in support of our troops on the ground. Not only are we fighting in Afghanistan, the rest of our Strike Group (which includes the USS Bainbridge) is fighting piracy. One day we are fighting Piracy the next OEF, then maybe next week it's providing Humanitarian aid to Bosnia. What ever it is the Sailors of the US Navy are ready do what it takes to preserve freedom for the American people. GO NAVY! God Bless America!
Petty Officer Robbins-
My daughter is deployed as well, aboard the USS LaBoon.
I just want to tell all our service people how much I appreciate the work you do.
Mr. Williams, Sr., my family knows very well how you feel and I also know what pride you have in your son.
Happy Father's Day to all you Dads out there.
God Bless America!
Petty Officer Robbins, Thank you and your fellows sailors on board for the great job you do for us and our country. We have a grandson in the Navy but on land right now, a step grandson in the Marines and scheduled to go to Iraq. Our son-in-law is career Army and has already been to Afghanistan & Korea. As I read your account of what you do everyday,I stand in awe of our military. We are a blessed nation to have you guys & gals defending our freedom. Please send my thanks to your fellow sailors and let them know that I pray for all our service men and women everyday. I'll call your name and your daughters when I pray also. God Bless you all. And God Bless America!
