      Ha. I’m giving myself some room to breathe. This is scarier than I thought it would be. I’ve invested a lot in writing this down as some of my dear friends can tell you.

    Molly,
    I was in Iraq at the same time as Pete and crew in 05-06, and I don’t know if he ever told you, but he was a blessing for me when I needed a friend. My boyfriend, who not 3 weeks prior had asked for my mother’s permission to marry me, decided that the deployment would be too hard. He couldn’t do it. Mind you, I had just supported him the past year on his deployment and had flown from Mosul to Balad getting shot at to see him before he redeployed home. He told me all this in an email without the decency to attempt to see me and tell me to my face that bottom line, he had started seeing a married woman and wanted to see where that went…. Anyhoo, back to your husband. Pete knew I was at Balad because I used to be their S2 and still had other friends in the unit. He said come over to the unit’s area on the airfield and we’ll talk. For close to what seemed like hours yet nowhere near enough time, Pete helped me see things in a different light. That this “man” who professed his love and feelings for me one day and then for a married woman the next was a coward at best. And I deserved much better and will get that when He is ready to introduce us. I will always remember the talk and that time with Pete in a desert land and be thankful for having a friend like him and you in my life. Even though it’s been a long time since I’ve seen either one of you, I’m blessed to be able to call you a friend. Thank you, Molly.
