Ahhhh...I stayed up all night long to hear these words.....! Billy called us at about 4:00am let us know that everything was "Good To Go" he said that it was a strong quake, but that it was about 18 miles off-shore that they just got a BIG jolt that rocked his war locker right off of the wall and sent him flying up & out of bed....the sirens were going off and they dressed and he got his Marines up and out for formation...they patrolled & secured the area and now they wait....

We're watching the news following the Tsunami coverage and chewing our fingernails down to nubs ~ LOL!

A few pictures that Billy sent to us....the one at the top of the post is of him & Katrina...she will be leaving Oki in July stationed in Washington, DC...isn't she just precious!

Billy & Trina sightseeing in Oki, it was an old Japanese Castle, I have more pics that I will share later & his B-Day cake that Trina & his buddies got for him...they surprised him & it made me feel good to knwo that he was celebrating his special day with people that he has come to know and love like family ~ they say that all of the time, they take care of each other.....

Thank you everyone for all ofyour prayers...please keep praying, we are now watching the Tsunami Wanrings....and please please Keep Justin in your prayers....all of our Military, things are just going crazy right now and they need all of our thoughts and prayers!!!

Until tomorrow, Be Safe & God Bless!
