Reflections From The Battlefield

When Lcpl Tyler was in Iraq, from August 2004 until March 2005, many friends and family would phone or e-mail us to find out how we were doing, and more importantly how Tyler was doing. We did not hear from Tyler often enough to give us a sense of how things were over there or how he really was, so we found comfort anything at all we could read about events in the Al Anbar Province of Iraq. One great source of comfort was the e-mails a friend (Valerie) would forward to my Clyrinda (my beautiful Dove). Valerie is a very close friend of Chief Petty Officer Ryan Krause, a Navy Corpsman who was in Ramadi for much the same period of time Tyler was in Husaybah. NOTE.......Husaybah is in the news nearly every day right now as it is a terrorist hotbed.......

In addition to being a Corpsman, CPO Ryan is pastor of a church in Temecula CA. He would send his "Reflections from the Battlefield" to his friends and family via e-mail, which were then forwarded to literally thousands of people. We found the reflections to be both informative and comforting, as Pastor Ryan would always focus on how God is still in control and working in the midst of the storm of war. His reflections are now part of a book which was released on 9/11 2005.
