U.S. Marine needs our prayers!

This is Cody with his cousin and little sister on the day he was deployed to Afghanistan.   His mother is a friend of mine, and I remember how anxious she was on this day.  Sending your baby off to war cannot be easy.  We prayed for his safety.

They received word on Sunday that Cody was seriously injured out on the field early Sunday morning.    He is in very critical condition. 

He is just 21 years old.  

Please pray for Cody, for his recovery, and that he is comforted by  those caring for him until his mom can be there by his side. It must be very scary to be so hurt and yet not surrounded by family. Please pray for Cody's mother, that she has a safe journey to her son.  As a mother myself, I can only imagine the overwhelming need and desire to be there with my baby when he is so hurt.  

Cody and his mother, Kerri, on the day he was deployed.

  1. I will be praying very very hard for him to get through okay! My dad was in Afghanistan for 6mths, 6mths before he died - all my love is going out to this family! :(

  2. My husband is currently is a Marine and is gone doing his predeployment training for Afghanistan. I will keep Cody in my prayers. If there is anything the family needs please feel free to give them my email AJellyBean83(at)yahoo(dot)com
    Not sure how I can help but will do whatever I can.
