Well Deserved Break...

Staff Sgt. Clayton Hendricks, a combat engineer from Placerville, Calif., assigned to the 731st Explosive Ordnance Disposal Company, 2nd Brigade Combat Team, 1st Infantry Division, takes time away from searching for bombs with the EOD technicians to say, “Hi” to a friend March 3, in Baghdad.

AM,

This photo is awesome. You can see the love in this soldier's eyes. Animals can certainly relieve stress and their love is therapy for our souls.

Sorry I haven't been over lately. I've been in kind of a funk.

Blessings,
Mary

Thank you so much for posting this picture. The first time I saw this picture I was sitting at my desk and it came in a forwarded email from my sister. "The lighter side of Iraq", the email was titled. The very second I saw his face I just instantly started crying and I got such a proud feeling in my heart. The soldier in the picture is my litte brother Staff Sgt Clayton Hendricks and he truly is a caring as you can tell he is just by looking at this picture. Thanks again, you have made my day! Thanks Stefani Hendricks

Please pass along my sincere gratitude to your brother, let him know I do pray for him and his comrades. PLEASE let him know if he ever wishes to share his words, it would be my honor to post them here.

I just wanted to let you know that I have sent many of my friends and family a link to this and so far the response has been so great. It really has touched a lot of people. My brother Clayton himself stopped by here also and wants you and all of the other folks that have written the kind words to know that he is so thankful for all of you and others that still care and are praying for the Soldiers fighting overseas. Thanks!
