We are now offering "RED" t-shirts in support of the "RED FRIDAYS" campaign. Wear your red T-shirt in support of the troops EVERY Friday until all our troops are home safe. Check out our first "RED" shirt at shop.militarymomz.com/product.sc?categoryId=1&productId=38
There is a small All American Outfitters patch that we will put on the front left part of the shirt, where a pocket would be.
Look for new "RED" designs tomorrow!

What a great way to start the day, just to hear his voice and know he is okay! He is in Iraq now.... has been for about 2 days I think. I get confused with the time change and all. He sounded great. 183 days and counting.... We talked until his phone card ran out so... guess all of you who know me well, know that phone cards are on my list of things to buy and send him ASAP, LOL. I did get a letter in the mail to him immediately! Well, getting things ready so I can relax and watch the presidential debate.

I know I should answer EVERY call I get, but... I was so tired today from our trip to the trade day that I took a nap when we got home. I was snoozing good and the phone rang. I didnt recognize the number (was from a different area code and for some reason, I was thinking it was VA, - why, I have no idea, so I didnt answer.) Five seconds later, my cell phone rings, same number and it was Brock. I will NEVER let a call go unanswered again. I KNOW better!!! I feel like an idiot. He said I only have 3 minutes to talk and you wasted 2 of 'em by not answering the home phone, but... he was just playing with me. I told him I would NEVER let a call go unanswered again. They were just getting used to how it works there, so he should be able to call more often. If I get to talk to him as much as I have (of course, it is never enough), but more than I expected, his deployment to Iraq wont be so bad. I have talked to him via online and/or seen him on webcam and now talked to on the phone just about every day since last Saturday. He is such a great young man and I miss him so much! Keep him, his unit and all of our troops in your thoughts and prayers!!!

This is a picture of Brock in his tent in Kuwait that he shares with 13 other guys! I just talked to him via Yahoo messenger. He leaves Kuwait on 10/06 and will be in Iraq on 10/08. I miss him so much, but every day is one day closer to having him back with me. I am actively trying to reach our goal of 100,000 flag pins by November 1, but it doesnt look like it is going to happen. I may extend that date to 04/08/2009, his scheduled day to leave Iraq. I cant wait to have him home with me, but... after he leaves Iraq, he will have to go back to CA, so yes, I will be flying out to CA in April as I plan on being at LAX when his plane arrives! I am already looking forward to it. I will be the loudmouth crying mom screaming, "That's my baby!!!"

We are going to have a booth setup at the Trade Day/Flea Market in AL on Saturday. I am very excited about it. I am hoping to reach a lot of people and get more awareness for our troops. They do need our support! The families who are here at home also need our support, so we have targeted organizations that support the troops and their families to donate 50% of our sales to! Please help us in reaching our goal by helping us to promote www.militarymomz.com!
