I know he is safe

MOSUL, Iraq, Feb 9 (Reuters) - A suicide bomber detonated a vehicle laden with explosives near a U.S. patrol in the northern Iraqi city of Mosul on Monday, killing four U.S. soldiers and their interpreter, the U.S. military said.

Yes, I know Leland is safe, I talked to him. And luckily before I read this on the news. Because this is all you know.

I got a phone call this morning from another army spouse in the same unit all worried, she called my number just by accident. But I tried to calme her down until I could find the right phone numbers for her.

Her MIL called her, did you see the NEWS! She got her all worried. She didn't hear from her husband since over two days. She couldn't. If something happens, they usually can't call or write, the phone lines aand the internet is down until all the families are notified. But if something happens you would get notified personally right away. I kept telling her to try not to worry and sometimes is a good sign not to hear something.

I seriously don't know if I would have been able to stay so calme without knowing that my husband is okay, but I hope I helped her and that she got a phone call or a message from him by now.

Please think and pray for all the ones who did get the sad and devastating message in the last hours of all the ones who did loose their life trying to change the world to a better place.


  1. Ich bin so froh dass du mit Leland sprechen konntest und er ok ist!

    Keeping all the families of those who died and got injured in my thoughts and prayers and wishing them strength in these dark hours...

  2. I will be praying for all the families with loved ones serving our country. Glad to know Leland is safe and you were able to talk to him!

  3. He is always in my prayers along with the other soldier. I'm so happy to hear that he is safe.

  4. Oh my goodness, I can't imagine. I admire you for being so strong and calm for this lady. I'm sure it helped the both of you!
    My thoughts and prayers are with you ALL.
