My Soldier is leaving - again

My son, Paul, told me today that he and his unit (Army) are leaving for Iraq on Saturday night. This will be his 2nd tour. He is only 20 (he will be 21 in less than a month) and he has seen a lot for his young age. What makes me even madder about all this is that he was only home for four months before he was called away again.
Paul, just remember this. You don't have to be a hero. Come home the same way you left. I love you. Be safe.

I pray for your son's safety and that he returns home to you very soon.
