Prayer request .......

#1 Post by wm » Thu Jan 02, 2020 6:13 pm

Ben was one of my ball players and close friend of my youngest son. He stumbled out of high school, righted himself and joined the ARMY. He is with the 82nd Airborne now and hopes to become a Ranger at some future point.

I would like to ask for prayers for him as he is working hard to recover from an ankle fracture and leg injury so he can deploy with his brothers. He is desperate about the idea of them going and him not being there to cover their six. And secondly could you pray to keep him safe. He's a good kid with a good heart.

From a former member of the 504th Parachute Infantry Regiment, prayers up for safety for all of those Devils In Baggy Pants. I heard it was the 2nd Battalion who was deployed. Quick Reaction Forces such as the 82nd have to stay ready to deploy within 36 hours or less from the order to go. It is tough on the men, and equally tough on families. They train hard and are kept ready to fight, and it is a difficult life. Some thrive on it, some enjoy it, and all volunteer and put forth a lot of effort to wear the maroon beret. May they all return home safely.

Prayers up.

I was in the 82nd for four years as part of the 3/73 Airborne. I desperately wanted to go when they deployed to Panama but we were on support phase and I was denied. I got my wish 15ish years later in Iraq.

He failed to get medically cleared. More physical therapy ahead. He has accepted his lot for now.

Looking into a pre Ranger school to get him ready for selection process.

Tell him to keep working at it. Prayers for him, and our other Soldiers continuing.
