All I want for Christmas...

>>,1413,106~4988~2550172,00.html"Not all of the milbloggers write about their faith (or lack of) in the mission. Sgt. Lizzie describes her location as "Hell, Iraq." Her blog is aptly named "Life in This Girl's Army" ( and reads much like a college kid's diary. <<

I read this yesterday and though hmm kinda sounds like a diss in a way. I think differently today after thinking on it I realized Liz is a college aged kid and IMHO anyone who can endure such conditions living daily with the threat of death, injury, and more listening to the morter fire, the gunfire, and sounds of battle raging and yet still can keep her spirits up and sound like a college kid is amazing.

I am Liz's mum she wanted me to come and tell you all she is OK and will be back when she can. Liz was on a convoy early this morning when her LMTV was hit by an IED. If you are watcing CNN or reading other news hers is the one near Bouquaba. Liz has injuries to her face she lost two teeth she has laceration to her legs and her ankle is hurt enough she can't walk on it right now but should be fine soon. Please keep her in you thoughts and prayers and remember also the family of the other soldier. (read the news)

Liz wants you all to know she will miss you and will try to get to a computer to start bloggin again ASAP. She was in good spirits when she called me this am and said to tell you "All I want for Christmas is my two front teeth."
