Well Done,Dad,may your son and all the soldiers that have serve this past year receive thanks and praise for there service.
Good luck to the new soldiers , we are proud of you.
Our prayers and tears are with the families and friends of all those who have given too much.


My son was at Summerall for one year 2004-2005 in support of OIF3. It was a happy and proud day when he and his unit returned. I continue to follow the news from Summerall through this site and thank all who have maintained it--it has been both a source of comfort and tears, and a way to keep connected. Good luck to the mom who is now taking over this task--know that your efforts are appreciated. My thoughts and prayers are daily with our soldiers, those who have paid the ultimate price of war with their lives, and their families. God bless and thank you.

My son returned from Iraq in the fall and while he is still stationed far from here, I find so much comfort in knowing that he is at least safely back in the states. For a year Summerall was home for my son and his commerades. For a year it was the only safety they knew. For a year the walls and fences provided a haven for them to relax as best they could with the horrors of war right outside its gates. For a year I clicked on this page, hungry for information, starving for a glimpse of what what my son's home away from home. It is with extreme gratitude that I bid farewell, until we meet again. To the new families who now take over my vigil, may God watch over your loved ones and give you strength to endure what may be the hardest separation of your lives. Sincerely, Jody Navakuku, a grateful Rakkasan mother.

Fob summerall will be open indefinitely because there is a place called the bayji oil refinery that is in that town. as long as that oil is flowing we will stick around to make sure it gets to the right place.
