Along those same lines...
I am terrified that something will happen to Thomas. He starts convoy duty the second week of August. He'll be the damn GUNNER.
I know some of you may think that I'm crazy (wait, that part goes without saying) for getting so involved with Thomas, even though we haven't met yet. But please know this: Thomas and I grow closer every day, and even if things don't work out romantically (although I hope they do), he means the world to me. I realized, not that long ago, that I would give my life in a HEARTBEAT if it would guarantee that Thomas would come home safely.
We received some good news recently: he MIGHT be home by Thanksgiving, a full month earlier than we anticipated. Even so, that's 4 long months away. PLEASE, everyone, I beg you to keep Thomas in your thoughts and prayers.
