Sgt. Rodney M. Hobday

Our son, , USMC, is stationed in the Middle East servicing in Operation Iraqi Freedom.

He is with the 2nd Marine Expeditionary Brigade, 8th Communications Division in electronics support. Rodney has been in the U.S. Marines for five years now and just re-enlisted for another four years. He is planning on making the Marines his career. Rod and I, along with his sister, Deanna, her husband, Todd, and his brother, Ryan are all very proud of what he is doing and love and miss him tremendously. His two nieces, Morgan and Diana, love him very much, too and pray for his his safe return every night. We continue to keep him (and all the military) in our prayers daily. They are the backbone of our Nation.

Love, Rod, Kathy, Ryan, Deanna, Todd, Morgan and Diana
