He's a Navy Seabee on deployment in Afghanistan. He's only on week two of a year-long deployment. His girlfriend broke up with him yesterday. He's heartbroken and far from home, in a very rudimentary camp - sleeping in tents and without running water. I can see his depression on his Facebook posts, and I am very worried about his well being. Please pray he stays safe and his spirits lift. I miss my little bro and wish I could be with him in this tough time!

I'll keep him in my prayers

Praying for him... is there anything we can do? Send little uplifting notes??

Let me know in a pm.. I will do that if you think it will help.

Hugs for you too...

I was thinking what Kajem said. Is there a way some of us could write to him? Is there a pen pal program for these incredible men.

Sending lots of prayers his way.

Walk away from anything or anyone who takes away your joy. Life is too short to put up with fools.

Thanks for your prayers and offers to write to him. He wrote back to me on Facebook last night (about his only means of communication right now, as his gmail address does not seem to be working) and said he expects to be moved to a new camp in the next month and will have a mailing address then. My kids have written or drawn pictures for him every day, and right now I have resorted to scanning them and sending them as a picture through Facebook.

He's been deployed before, but never to a challenging location like this. I'm just so worried about him, especially because his mood is so low.

Thanks for all the prayers, and if I get more info about how to write to him, I will let you all know!

Sending prayers. Such a horrible thing to happen, especially to a member who is deployed.

Holding good thoughts for him (and his brothers & sisters in arms). Such a shitty thing to do to someone - breaking up with them while they are a world away and in harm's way.
