D***. I SO feel for him, 'cause I know he wanted to finish his hitch with his outfit.

Will you go over to WR and stay with him, or wait until he comes home?

Oh, I feel so bad for Mike. After all he has been through, not to be able to be there at the very end. God bless him. The Lord has His plan, I know.

Please let him know mystery, that we're all thinking of him and praying for him.

congratulations on the results. It looks like Mike and Eric are coming back at the same time.
Even understanding your husband's feelings about leaving his boys behind, his health comes first. Are you going to meet him at the hospital? That would be neat.

I don't think there's a FReeper-specific cookbook,

I asked because so many great recipes are shared while waiting for breaking news...I thought perhaps someone was compiling the recipes?

but Carlo3b has at least one cookbook available.

I'm on his ping list but I wasn't aware that he had published a cookbook.

I have two cookbooks in print and another one that will be out in June.

Please give me the titles and I will try to find them.

I didn't mean to take anything away from the great work you and Carlos have done. I just wanted to see if anyone was preserving the great recipes that FReepers share during the 'wait and see' period.

I meant no harm to anyone.

I read somewhere he didn't go to the funerals because the security required would have disrupted the family. I also read he writes a personal letter to the family of every person killed. . . .

I have been upset all day...he wanted so much to return and bring his troops home...and to return like this, oh well....it can't be helped...he was there a year, he's done his fair share...it was only a matter of several more weeks.

I will not go to WR...he has no idea how long he'll be there....Jonathan and I will probably drive to Campbell and see him when he gets there.

Here are some more pictures of the president's and the First Lady's visit to Ft. Campbell, Ky yesterday from our local news paper


Fort Campbell color guard stands at attention as Air Force One taxis into Campbell Army Airfield Thursday.



President Bush and first lady Laura Bush wave to Fort Campbell supporters after landing at Campbell Army Airfield Thursday.

President Bush, with first lady Laura Bush, talks with Maj. Gen. David Petraeus, commander of the 101st Airborne Division, Fort Campbell, after the Bushes arrived at Campbell Army Airfield Thursday.

Fort Campbell soldiers salute the American flag during the presentation of the colors before the arrival of President Bush at the division parade field on Fort Campbell Thursday.

Country music singer Darryl Worley performs his hit "Have You Forgotten" for troops and their families gathered at the division parade field Thursday to hear President Bush speak.

The troops went wild when Darryl Woley performed that song



First lady Laura Bush waves to the crowd as Maj. Gen. David Petraeus, commander of the 101st Airborne Division, Fort Campbell, middle, gives the thumbs-up to his troops

President Bush shakes hands with Fort Campbell soldiers.

Maj. Gen. David H. Petraeus, left, welcomes President Bush to the podium while their wives, Holly Petraeus and first lady Laura Bush, and cheering soldiers look on.

think he made the right decision, to call each family, visit Walter Reed and visit privately with families when he goes to bases, rather than spot select funerals.

However, I do wish that he or someone in the Administration would comment on his not attending the funerals (to shut the liberals up). All they need to say is that some people keep complaining that he hasn't attended any funerals and ask them just which soldiers they would select. Talk about hard or hurt feelings--explain to all the families how one should be selected over another.

This shows and proved that the president has respect for the troops and loves them and vica verse

I use Minor's bases (www.soupbase.com) for many of my crockpot recipes. Instant broth. In fact, I used some low-sodium chicken base and some roasted maripoix concentrate in a cream of broccoli soup I made tonight. Nuked that one though. ;)

Good grief!! Just asking questions brings out the 'Viking Kitties' and since I've only been here a couple of years, I'm hesitant to ask questions. Duh..!!

What was your point? I asked a very respectable question and got slammed.

So no surgery? If they're talking release, that's wonderful!

I sure hope grandma can visit . . . his mom would go nuts if she was housebound for two months! :-) It's a good idea; I had a friend who took her three DAY old baby shopping at a huge mall just a WEEK BEFORE CHRISTMAS! I thought she was nuts--all those germs . . .

I'm so glad he's doing OK! How are his parents? Majorly stressed, I bet.

Gosh, why doesn't anything EXCITING ever happen in your family? Don't you get bored??? LOL!

Since we were talking about music earlier, are you "Walkin' on Sunshine"?

My husb. couldn't believe Kerry was that much of a jerk to his Secret Service guys.

Another comment . . . the reporter said Kerry made the comment that "many world leaders have given me their support." But now he won't say WHICH world leaders. Now I heard that the reporter listened to his tape again, and what Kerry had actually said was, "Many leaders have given me their support" (or something like that, point being, he didn't even SAY "WORLD" leaders)

So, I ask, why didn't Kerry clear up what he actually said in the first place? Instead, he's defending something he didn't even say. "When first we practice to deceive, oh what a tangled web we weave"

Have you seen the new Bush ads, where they show him saying, "I voted FOR the $87 billion before I voted against it!"????

I've said, they've given Pres. Bush all the ammunition he needs!

mystery, tell Mike that Mr Ohio and I are both relieved and sorry at the same time.

He is SUCH a leader and good soldier for wanting to go back, but God is Sovereign, and this is obviously what HE wanted for Mike.

We will keep praying for total recovery, and peace for you both.

You will never know how much you both mean to our family. Never.

I'd love to exchange recipes! Also tips for making your family think you've been doing housework all day . . .

I also need to get the internet hooked up by my TV, so my family doesn't know how much time I spend here . . . is there a 12-step group for Dosers? :-) (NOT making fun at all of 12-step groups . . . just that I AM showing signs of dependency) but it's a healthy addiction, right?
