My Brother is also out there with 40 Commando. Havn't yet heard anything from him in the 3 weeks he's been there. Killing me inside!

God Bless All of You!

Know how you feel Mel. My son also with 40 went out about 12 days ago and I was numb. I've spoken to him and all's well at the mo.
They're an amazing team and I'm v proud that he's part of it. Just pray that they all come home safely.
