Ricky's dad, Lt. Col. Roger I. Gerrard, is now deployed to Iraq for approximately one year. Ricky got to come home for R and R before Roger left, so our families were able to get together. Ricky will be returning to Iraq in a couple of weeks.

ENS Jeremy Gerrard has arrived in Afganistan for a tour of approxiimately 9 months. Yes, that means my husband and both of our sons are deployed. Between them, they represent the Air Force, Army and Navy.
Yes, I am so proud of them that I choke up. I can't even describe how scared I am for them, but they are all doing what they feel is important.
Ricky will be leaving soon to return to his unit in Baghdad.
Thank you all for your thoughts and prayers. Robin
(p.s. - Ashley is doing well, she is a junior at Mississippi State, applying for vet school! )
