Update Page

Here I intend to provide a quick index to updates on the site so that you do not have to constantly check each page.

There will be a date of the update and a link to the relevant page.  I will probably leave it for a month or so.  Also the updated or new portion of the page will have a blue color text for awhile so you can go right to it.  Let's see how it works.

HELLO FROM TEXAS.

I AM JUST ANOTHER PROUD MOTHER OF ONE OF YOUR FELLOW SOLDIERS, JUSTIN HUNTER.
AS YOU KNOW, JUSTIN IS RECOVERING FROM KNEE SURGERY AT FORT RILEY, KANSAS.
 
I AM SENDING MY PRAYERS AND THOUGHTS TO ALL OF YOU.  MY FAMILY IS FOLLOWING THE DAILY ACTIVITIES OF YOUR MISSION IN THE NEWS AND WE ARE SO VERY PROUD OF EACH OF YOU!
I FEEL SO FORTUNATE TO BE ABLE TO SEE THIS WEB SITE AND KNOW THAT YOU ARE THE SOLDIERS WHO JUSTIN IS ASSIGNED WITH.  WHEN I LOOK AT YOU I SEE "BRAVE MEN" WHO I ADMIRE AND RESPECT.  PLEASE KNOW THAT WHAT YOU ARE DOING IS" MAKING A DIFFERENCE" AND THAT YOU ARE  APPRECIATED AND VALUED AS AMERICAS' PRIDE! 
I KNOW THAT YOU WILL NOT BE HOME WITH YOUR FAMILIES DURING THIS THANKSGIVING AND THAT YOU WILL BE GREATLY MISSED AND THAT YOU MAY HAVE NEVER SPENT A HOLIDAY AWAY FROM YOUR  FAMILY.  REST ASSURED YOU WILL BE WITH ALL OF US IN OUR HEARTS AND THOUGHTS.
 
THE TRUTH IS, THIS COUNTRY HAS A VERY HARD TIME CELEBRATING ANY HOLIDAYS WITH SO MANY OF "OUR OWN" SONS AND DAUGHTERS OUT OF THIS COUNTRY.  MAY OUR PRAYERS COMFORT EACH OF YOUR HEARTS AND MAY YOU FEEL OUR SUPPORT AND ADMIRATION ACROSS THE MILES.  YOU ARE THE REASON FOR "THANKSGIVING" AND  YOUR SERVICE TO OUR COUNTRY CONTINUES TO GIVE US SO MANY REASONS TO REMEMBER WHY WE HAVE SUCH A DAY TO CELEBRATE.  WE WILL REJOICE WHEN YOUR MISSIONS ARE COMPLETED AND YOU ARE SAFELY HOME ONCE AGAIN.
 
KEEP A WATCHFUL EYE OUT FOR YOURSELVES  AND  EACH OTHER AND MAY EACH OF YOU STAY SAFE.
MAY GOD BLESS AMERICA AND EACH ONE OF YOU!!!!
BRENDA K. SZYMANSKI
