You are herecontent / Ryan
October 01, 2005
This is Ryan's family. I met them Saturday at the Peace Rally.
Aunt Kathleen and Aunt Ann
Uncle Fred, Brother Corey, and Aunt Rose
Ryan's aunt told me his story.
Ryan is a Marine serving in Iraq, but Friday September 23, 2005, Ryan was scheduled to return home to his family. He hopped on the plane leaving Iraq (yesterday), excited for his journey home and relieved that he was leaving Iraq in one piece and alive.
Unfortunately, the powers-that-be changed Ryan's plans. As Ryan sat on the plane and waited to take off, an officer suddenly came on board. He called out three names.
Ryan's was one of them.
Ryan was told that he would have to stay in Iraq longer because there were not enough people to release him.
Saturday, Ryan's aunts, uncle, and brother marched in DC carrying the message to George Bush, "Bring Ryan home!"
Ryan has access to his email and so his family will email him this picture and your prayers.
Please post your wishes to Ryan and all our soldiers in this thread (click here) to let them know how much we love and appreciate their work.
