Easter in Iraq ... thoughts of Nate

Lance Cpl. Nate Salatin, USMC

It's Easter weekend ... Lance Cpl. Nate Salatin of Augusta County is nearing the end of his deployment to Iraq. On this holiest of Christian holidays my thoughts turn to him more often, praying for his safety ... wondering how he's spending his time while on patrol ... wondering about his thoughts on this Easter weekend so far from home.

As the son of missionaries, he has spent many Easters in church with his family ... worshiping and remembering the sacrifices that Christ made not far from where Nate patrols for terrorist bombs....

May God keep him safely in His hands. Semper Fi.
