Steve Noll’s Travel Diary

Thursday, 10 Dec 2009

Location: Baghdad, Iraq

MapKeep a family in your prayers...

I don't know where he was from or who his family is back home, but a soldier two CHUs over from me suffered a self-inflicted gunshot wound to the head today.

It is tough for some/most this time of year being away from family, kids, friends at the holidays. Last year Iraq suffered 36 suicides. They are very proactive about suicide prevention but some people just don't show signs.

So, please pray for his family as they will be burying their son/brother/nephew/cousin next week back home. I am sure they will not be able to forget this Christmas.

May God forgive his actions.

Lt Col Steve Noll
