Jacob

I am so damn proud of you son. You are so smart and humble. I remember teaching you how to ride a bike. Trusting me not to let you fall you overcame your fear and in a week you were riding all by yourself.

For so long I haven't been there with you. You've had so much to think about, because while your sister Linnea doesn't understand what I do and what happens to me, you know and you worry about me. That is a lot for a young boy to have to bear. I love you more than you will ever know and I am proud to be your daddy. I love you son.

Keep up the good work - although not a US citizen I still appreciate the efforts of the armed forces in Iraq who at the end of the day are ordinary people like the rest of us... except they're doing extraordinary things.
Glad to hear you'll be home shortly. Hope all goes well til then.

It's so touching to see a man/father show so much love and emotion for his children... those words will mean a lifetime of love to Jacob and Linnea.

Zach- we miss you and love you very much. Ingrid showed me your website and it's incredible. You are doing amazing things just by being so forward about the realities that you live each and every day, and I know there are many people who are very thankful for your honesty and talent. Love Beefa and Ingrid
