My wife's cousin, Ray, is stationed in Iraq. We got word last night that the tank he was in was hit and he was badly injured. They were trying to stabilize him and get him out of there. This morning, we hear that he is stable and in Germany in the hospital. Lost an eye, has some shrapnel in the brain, and they had to open up his head to relieve pressure.

But.....

He is stable and responding to hand signals, which, they say, is a very good sign. He is one of two sons stationed over there, and if you have a second, I would a appreiciate a quick prayer for his full recovery, and for all of our men and women serving over there.

Many thanks.

Sorry to hear he was hurt, but it's good to hear that he's responding since he had severe head injuries. Thoughts and prayers for him and the family.

Prayers sent for Ray and his family. I wish him a speedy recovery. My son is still in Iraq and will be until the end of this coming October. Hopefully, my wife and I will get our son back unhurt. All the men and women in our armed forces have a very dangerous job and deserve our admiration and prayers. I wish Ray all the best.

Prayers sent, I have 3 boys over there so certainly know the feeling of them being over there. (cousin's son and the two "adopted" sons) This is very intense with him being so badly.
