Operation "New Dawn"

The "36th Texas Infantry" Texas National Guard
shipped out this morning 9/27/2010 from Camp Mabry
Texas to Fort Lewis Washington and on to
Iraq for 400 days.

My niece, Amanda Floyd had to leave her
6 month old baby at home with her new husband
and get on the truck. 706 soldiers and gear left
as the sun came up.

Amanda is a specialist in the general surgical
unit of the 36th Texas

Best Wishes Amanda

Best wishes, and may God's presence be with her. I'm sure that we all wish her all the best, and pray that she come back safely to her new baby.

This is a perfect example of the sacrafices made by a few for all.. A new Mom with a 6 month old is NOT ready to give that baby to a new husband.. I'm really proud of her for making this sacrafice.. At least Iraq is a bit safer than it was.. I'm trying to make you feel better Chuck, we all know your praying.. I will add Amanda to my list buddy.. hope the wife is better..

a man has to hold his word, hold his beliefs, and hold a good sight picture.

Amanda's husband Jerrod is my sisters son.
He is a good guy to the bone.
They did put the cart before the horse and
Amanda got pregnant before they got married.
Seems like that is common place these days.
I know Jerrod and his mom will take good care of that
baby boy but his mom will miss the first year of his life.
That's when they start walking and talking.

Im sure they'll get it all on tape for her. It will be nowhere near the same, I KNOW!! But that little boy has a Momma to be doubly proud of. These women that do this, are soo much stronger than many, many women will ever be. I dont know that I couldve done it when my girls were just born.. I take my hat off to her, and commend her on her pride of duty, and pray for her safe return.

when I was a kid and talk about other guys
mothers. The most common joke was
"You're mother wears combat boots"
In this case it is very true LOL
Amanda is a real neat gal and takes
her job very serious
