On patrol in Iraq-Video

Scott and I went on patrol with 2nd Platoon, Bravo Company, 4th Battalion, 9th Infantry Regiment in the town of Nasir wa Salam yesterday. The mission was like many these folks do these days. They were to find out as much information as they could about an IED attack that took place a few weeks ago. The squad I was with was part of the security element.

    It helps to get as much news on where my son is and what he is doing! Steven Blake Gamble is his name. He is my only son! He is a infantry radioman.And he is so proud of that.I lay down at night with the thoughts of him and all the brothers that he has now. I wake up with the thoughts of him.There is a large hole in my heart that will only be filled when I see him get of the plane and has safely returned home to me!Some days are harder than others a bombing a army brother who has lost there life.All those in other branches of our armed services.In other parts of the world.On those days we suffer such lose
    it tends to cripple me.The days I fall on the floor burying my face cring out to God!Protect our children keep them safe see them threw the trials they face dear GOD keeep them strong!There is no way to make one understand what a mother feels.Please keep us well informed of what our sons go threw.I know that news has to be delayed for the safety of those who serve.But remember this us mothers are going threw a war of our own!
