Well, it's been a while
We are making do here, wishing the days and the heat away.
Actually, so far the month of August has been a little
cooler than those last few days in July thankfully. Between
patrols I have been working on organizing gear and packing
stuff up in preperation to come home. It helps me to realize
how close we really are to getting out of this place.
Again, thank you to all who have written and sent mail
as well. It is such a blessing to me! As always I miss
you guys a ton and can't wait until we can come home.
Just wanted to keep you up to date some. We are headed
out on another mission...a long one this time it looks
like. The temp is supposed to be in the 130's. W/ all
that gear on...I just can't wait!! Or not. I just wanted
to say thank you for all the cards letters and care packages.
It all means a lot to me here. Its awesome to know that
we are not forgotten. I look forward to coming home in
the fall. I miss and love you all !
Sorry I haven't been able to keep up w/ messages. I really
appreciate the support and concern. It really means a
lot to me. I thank you for the prayers as well, and can't

you terribly. I love you, and my prayers are with you.

PETER!!!! (screamed with much joy) It was AWESOME to talk
to you last night, amazing to hear your voice after all
these months. We're counting the minutes until you come

you as our brother. What you're doing is incredible and
will never be forgotten! We'll have the A/C running on
freezing for you when you get back....Much love and hugs,
Rachel and Aaron
Just to let you know we are praying for you. We go to
church with your brother Aaron. He gave us an address
to send mail to you. Are there any items that we could
send to you that would be possible to mail and that you
would like to receive?? Please let me know.
God bless and keep you,
It was great to see your mom, dad and sarah at M.J.'s
wedding. It was fun to help together.

gave us this link, making it possible to write to you.
Just wanting you to know that we have been praying for
you, that God would guide and protect you and all of the
armed forces overseas. Praying for your speedy and safe
return! ~ Bob and Missy Fuson
Got your criptic message Friday. thanks for letting us
know you're alright, we couldn't find anything in the
news but the little blip about calling in air support
for you. I learned today that we lost 2 more from second
platoon, my heart breaks for those families and I have
to try real hard mnot to worry about you. It would rip
our hearts out to lose you. Mama and Papa went to the
Family day today, I had to work so I couldn't make it
this time. They said that several of the wounded guys
had made it home and were there. Of course they asked
about you and the ones that know you only had awesome
things to say. I don't have their names, but I'm sure
Papa will send them along by motomail so you can update
anyone wondering over there. Love you, kick butt!!! Sarah
Congrats! You already know that I am so proud of you.
I sent another e-mail and package yesterday with the L
still attached because I hadn't visited this page in a
while, so it might take a little longer than the last
one to get there. Sorry. I miss you so much. And just
in case Paul's reading this, too... thanks for posting
the update. It's much appreciated. Later days.
Hey Peter, Just trying this website out since you suggested
it. Keep doin what your doing. And Doin It Well. Like
i said before, I know you guys are a lot deeper in that
shit than i was, so i got alot of respect. I'll be here
for you if ya need anything-keep pushing.
Miss ya, Katelyn
ps Still waiting to go snowboarding!
it hasn't been said yet but i just thought i'd make it
known that Peter made Corporal several weeks ago. So if
anyone is writting letters or anything. it will get to
him faster if you drop the L.
congradulations are in order! Spank you. - paul
Hey Big Guy...
Just wanted to send our love and thanks for what you are
doing for the world. We're trying to keep the rest of
your family doing some things around the store. Paul is
a great help. I hear you guys are haveing a big birthday
coming up. If you keep going, you'll be as old as me soon.
Tom & Sandy
Mama said you'd gotten a chance to call for a minute today.
It was awesome to hear you're doing alright. Since you're
still out I don't guess you'll get this for awhile, but
I'm packing up another box for you. Maybe I'll beat the
19 pounder this time:). Hope the motomail gets out to
you wherever you are. I'm working more OT here, it's hot,
but not nearly as hot as you. Hurricane season is starting
so we should be getting drenched soon. Try not to think
about that too much eh:) I miss you. I sent my guardian
angels over to help yours out, they should be there by
now, they're fast flyers. Love you more than lots. cant
wait till you're home. your big sister sarah
Hey there Peter...just wanted to let you know that I'm
praying for you all! Be safe and trust in God for whatever
hey there big brother...
here's some pics of random stuff...hopefully it'll help
you remember some of the faces back here waiting for you!
I miss you a bunch...playing out isn't so much fun without
you on bass. keep practicing whenever you can...i'm doing
the same. i'm praying for you. feel free to hop on any
planes headed this direction. I know a bunch of people
that wouldn't mind a bit. Hopefully we'll talk to you
again soon! You make everyone's day when you get a chance
to call...it always seems to be at just the right time
too. keep your head up. you'll be back before you know
i love you
As friends of Rachel and Aaron - we also wanted YOU to
know that we think of you every day, and have our church
group praying for you too. We are so proud of you, and
are wishing all of you safe passage home. Emily wanted
to send you some pictures - and kisses and huggs :) -
Cheryl, Jeff & Emily Grayson
Peter, I don't know you, but I want to say Thank you so
much for what you are doing for us here in the US. Sincerely,
Hey Peter! I'm so glad you told me about this site! Now
I can leave you messages all the time! (I hope I don't
bother you though!) :) I just wanted to let you know that
you are in my thoughts and prayers everyday and I can't
wait until you come home. I can't even imagine what you
are going through, and honestly, I don't want to because
it just scares me. But I know that the Lord is with you
and He is by your side every step of the way. Just remember
that. And know that there are people here that support
you and love you, and we are so very proud of you! Stay
strong, and may the peace of the Lord be with you. I'm
counting the days until you come visit me at Max &
Erma's! :) Take care Peter...talk to you soon. Love, Ashley
Hey Peter! I'm praying for you daily and I miss you. -
Peter, I hope you are well. My prayers are with you. God
Bless you and Keep you safe.
Moe later your cuz.
Hey Peter.... I met your family this past weekend. It
wasnt under the best of circumstances but it was really
nice to meet them. They are very nice people and lucky
to have a son like you. I know what you are going though
right now has to be difficult and I can not relate to
how you are feeling. I just want you boys to come home
safe. I can not imagine the situation you boys are in
right now and under the circumstance I am sure it is hell.
I just cant wait till the day when you boys step off that
bus at the drill center and we can be there to greet you
with smiles and tears. Dustin and Erdy will never leave
your side. They will continue to fight with you everyday
to keep you strong and to get you though the next few
months. The memories you have shared with them will never
fade.... especially the ones from Vegas!!! Cause I know
we all had a blast!! But keep your head up and fight hard.....
do it in their honor!!! Your in my thoughts and prayers
everyday.... love always... Kristin (Derga's girlfriend)
Becky and I continue to pray for you daily for your physical
strength and protection, and also that you will be used
by the Lord to be an encouragement to the members of your
squad and platoon. Your presence in Iraq has caused us
to all pause and consider the cost of freedom and not
take it so much for granted. We look forward to having
you work on a puzzle in our home and making a trip to
Graeters! I'll even buy, and that's saying something!
In Jesus's name Eric and Becky
Just wanted to send you a quick note to let you know our
thoughts and prayers are with you and your company.
Spring in Colorado has been interesting this year. We
have had a wide variety of weather, highs in the 70's,
lows in the 30's, rain, hail, snow, wind, sun... Kiefer,
Jared and I have been planting in our flower beds and
playing in the yard. Jay and I continue to work on our
garage. Jay is almost done with taping drywall in the
garage. We only have a few more pieces to completion,
texture, paint and flooring.
Prayer for safety and strength.
Your Colorado cousins
Claire, Jay, Kiefer, and Jared (see pic below)
Hey Peter. Eli, Glad to here that your doing well. I'm
sorry to here about your friend and commerads. I'm sure
you know every body is praying for you and your friends.
Take care of your self the best way you know how. (Father
God, I thank you for the bravery in Peter. I thank you
that you are every where is goes. I thank you that you
are that high tower that we run into for strength, love
and peace. Father I ask for your protection over Peter
and his commerads.) In Jesus Name. AMEN.
See you later. Eli.
just wanted to let you know that i am praying for you.

This is the first time I've written on this site, I know,
you're very surprised...I keep you in my thoughts and
prayers daily though. I'm becoming a workaholic yet again
this summer, but am hoping to go to Mexico in July and
then Maine in August, so the work schedule will only be
for two months. I miss you and pray for strength and endurance
for you. Love you bunches!
Many thoughts and prayers for you, Peter. As a Navy Hospital
Corpsman I take great pride in being there for the men
and women of the Marine corps. In a way I wish I was there
to make sure to bring you home alive. But being a single
mom I do not want to orphan Nathaniel . I hope you all
is well with you , I know lima company has been through
some rough times the last couple days. I pray with all
my heart you are safe and well. Love your Cousin. HM3
Hi Peter - I met you at Tree of Life Schools. I work with
Becky Vaas. You are with our son, Matt Mason. He is not
on this website, but hopefully you can say Hi to him for
us. Maybe you can encourage him to get set-up so we can
communicate this way with him as well. Becky and I try
to keep each other informed whenever we hear something.
Please take care of yourself. You have a lot of prayers
coming your way daily. Stay safe, and may you feel the
Lord's protective arms around you. Cathy Mason
I just wanted to say that I hope you are doing well and
I posted some pictures from our Military Ball that I forgot
to send earlier. Well forgot/didn't know how yeah same
thing :) I love you bunches!
I don't know how often you can check this, but I figured
I would write to you from as many places as I could :)
I hope that you are doing well. I got the chance to go
to the Reds game on Wednesday and I thought you might
like some pictures. We got to sit in the suit/box seats
because of my roommate, Carolyn's dad. These are the other
girls I will live with next year. I love you bunches and
bunches and I can't wait to have you home again!
Rachel checked me in at the doctor's office today and
gave me this web address. It took me a while to recognize
her without the nose ring and bike, but you know how severe
my "blonde" moments can be. I have plenty of
hilarious drama to catch you up on. Can you believe that
I'm housesitting at my professor's place with four dogs?
I can't think of anyone less cut-out for that job than
me! The pictures of you are really fun; it's so great
to see your smile again. I miss you like crazy. I love
you, and you're constantly in my prayers. Keep smiling.
Hey man, it's Ryan (Erica V's b/f) - Just wanted to tell
you that Erica and I are prayin' for you. I can't thank
you and those around you enough for your willingness to
protect our freedom in America...Stay safe and come back
29 Palms sandy enough for you? I'm sure you'll have your
fill by the time you get home. I posted the picture of
everyone(minus Jonathan) from the Sunday you left. I was
trying to figure how to add him in but it just looked
too goofy, maybe I should have since he's a rather goofy
guy:) Jonathan & Paul started Fire School, I think
they like it so far but they're certainly whooped at the
end of each class, especially Saturday's. Nathan just
passed the 240HR. part off his class and is working on
the EMT part for the rest of the school year.
You're in my prayer's everyday. May God protect you and
keep you, may He make His face shine upon you and give
you peace and bring you home safe.
Here's some pictures from various times. I hope they cheer
you up..and probably make you laugh at our silliness.
I love you bunches and miss you tons!!
Our prayers go with you and your fellow Marines. We greatly
We wanted to pass along a little something to bring a
smile. So we are attaching a picture of Kiefer and Jared.
Jared has the beak and Kiefer the shaggy eyebrows and
