Greetings Bob Woodruff,
I am glad to know that God has been faithful in bringing healing and renewal into your life. I know that many prayed for you and your family, after the news was shared and throughout your months of therapy and recovery. I am thankful for the news reports you have brought to the forefront of the many challenges for our troops in Iraq and Afghanistan. We have our 22 year old middle son (five sons) who is on his third tour in Saqlawiyah, Al-Anbar, Iraq. Nathaniel is in the USMC serving with the !st Battalion / 1st Marines, in an infantry unit. You have brought to our homes on many occasions the many challenges that also affect our soldiers and Marines when they return home. Thank you for this.
I am sure it is because of a Bush Administration request, but why when reporting on the deaths of our military, like today, (nine more killed), is the total of soldiers and Marines killed in this senseless war, not revealed? The only time it is shown is on Sunday Mornings with George Stephanopolis. Why is this?
Joy and peace,
Rev. Tom Martinez
