Memory Wall For Soldier On Deployment

My son is in the US Navy. Since he is missed when on deployment. I have a full wall devoted to him, named "David's Wall" These are my most recent additions to it, taken somewhere at sea. The wall also has any Navy item I find and souvenirs like his first plane ticket stub, group photo from boot camp, etc.

Hugs to you Randa! From a mom who's been in your shoes and knows that it's not an easy time you're going thru now. Keep adding to David's Wall. I used to find all sorts to stuff to added to our "Marine's Room" as we call it...and still do with one headed for Japan. Godspeed to your son and you're in our prayers too!

Thanks for the picture and post! My son is in the Navy too! He's only 20 and already has served in Iraq and will be going again this year. I scrapbook his Navy memories but do have a wall in my hallway with pictures of him and his Military buddies. I know the super proud and scared feelings all too well! Growing up as a daughter and a sister to military men doesn't make it easier. Just a very proud way of life!

Hi Randa,

What a great idea and a beautiful picture. I know how hard it is not to have David home. I'll keep your family in my prayers and for David to return home safe. Be sure to thank David for his service to our country.

Hugs and Prayers.............Danialle

Randa, best wishes for your son's safe return. My son left Monday to return to his 3rd tour of Iraq. He has been there from the very beginning. During his first 1-yr tour we worried all the time and went weeks without hearing from him. During his 2nd 1-yr tour we discovered internet and webcam. I leave Yahoo Messenger running and he just pops on to chat. We can instantly upload pictures. I show him home improvements, he shows me his gorgeous new muscles (he's working out) and pictures of him out and about. With the webcam it's almost like being together again. The most wonderful part of my day is when he pops onto my computer. Once we chatted for 6 hours. When I said "I bet you're tired of chatting with me," he said "No way, it's the hi-light of my day."

For anyone missing their loved one in Iraq, the internet is a God send.
