Handsome!

My cousin Chris just came back from Iraq and it was the best thing ever to have him home safe and sound.

Billy asked to go over there but we still worry about him. He e-mails up as much as he can. I am glad you cousin is back home safe.

I hope your brother comes back home safely for good soon. For everyone over there, hopefully there'll all get to come home one day soon.

Wow, I cry when I think of people who actually want to go over there. Tell him "Thank You" from me and tell him I think he is very brave!

My only family member is state-side on a base. Well, he flies here and there and repairs planes but not to Iraq or the frontlines. Closest he got was Africa. Still scares me!

What a good looking guy!
Let's hope that all the military personnel get to come back home for good soon. I bet you're very proud.

Cute! He's in my prayers for a safe return!

Dawn, my cousin volunteered to go as well. I thought he was crazy (I still think he's crazy). And he said if he didn't have a girlfriend at home, he would have gone back over as a civilian contractor when he gets out of the Marines in November. Insane.

Billy, Thanks for your service. Whether we agree with our leaders and our policies or not, I think it's safe to say that we are all thankful for your service and the service of all the other men and women stationed around the world. Stay safe and keep your spirits up knowing we are all behind you.

Your brother is such a brave and selfless young man. Both of my sons really look up to those serving in the military and my entire family is so proud of and thankful for the young men and women like him who are far away from home and keeping us safe.

Bless your brother for selflessly going over to fight for us. I wish him a safe return home when his duty is over.

And btw, he's a cutie. ;)

Hi Billy! Nice to see you! I am in London though from New York. How's the food there? Don't answer, I am sure it sucks bad! But don't worry you will be back in June eating I dunno, fried chicken or something. Do they have Mickey Dee's over there and sell Mc Iraq Sand Burgers? Anyway, wishing you all the best!!

Hey Billy! I don't have much to say because I think everyone has basically said it for me.

You and the rest of our soldiers in Iraq and Afghanistan are in my prayers.

I hope your brother gets home safe. I have friends over there who I haven't heard from in months and it makes me sad. Also my 3 best friends want to join when they hit the right age. It sucks. Tell ur brother thanx for me.

Hey, Billy! Hang in there and you'll be home sooner than you think! This may sound cheesy or cliche, but I, as an american, appreciate all you do over there! You have gorgeous eyes, by the way. :) Good luck to you and Godspeed!

For all of the people who think I should have a blog my life is pretty boring here I sleep go to work and watch movies and eat that is about all I have done here since I got here so I see no need to have one nonthing happens over here except every now and then we will get a mortar that will hit in the middle of a field away from everyone so my blog would be pretty empty.
