My heart is breaking for the families that have lost their loved ones in the violence that has erupted in Afghanistan. I cannot imagine what they are going through, but to hear that one of them found out through a text message just makes me sick. I found out about this through a post done by Army Wife 101, in which she also has the local news story about the horrible situation. I mean to find out the most horrible news a person can hear through a text message is just beyond wrong. I really hope that who ever leaked the information gets in trouble. There is protocol put in place for a reason! This is why there is OPSECS! My thoughts and prayers go out to all of the families, but especially this poor woman. I just can't imagine.
It sure does bring all those fears that are in the back of my mind to the front. Thank goodness I was able to talk to the husband today and know that he is ok, but still, it's hard knowing things aren't good over there. I know we will get through this, and every day done is one more day closer to him finally coming home.
I pray for the safe return of all of our men and women in the armed forces.
