Hold still while we shit on you again

Submitted by Libby a.k.a. the military matriarch

Dear friends and family,

As of Sept. 18, 2006 President Bush has cut all mid-tour Budget. To be more simple he has cut the money that would have allowed Ben to come home in Oct. Without that money Ben and many like him will not be able to come home for the holiday's to see their family's. Some of theses men and women did not get the chance that Ben did in June to come home. Some have saved up all their "promised" days to be home for a whole month at a time. Ben and I are doing all we can to make coming home in Oct. happen. I'm not sure yet how we are going to or if we are even going to be able to but we are sure as heck going to try. But many in Korea right now will not get this chance thanks to our President. Please give them your prayers, that they find peace with this news. As for right now we have to plan on Ben not being here. I am working on coming to grips with this but I am going to need your help. The idea of Ben not coming home now is heart breaking to me and the girls. So please do not talk about it around them. I don't want to get their hopes up and not be able to follow though. They've had their hearts broken to many times already.

thank you all and we love you.

libbie and the girls
