Jonah Compton On ReutersFor those of you that know me, you know my brother Jonah is in Iraq with his Marine Recon battallion. We've been praying for him every day and today my mom sent me a link to a picture of Jonah that appeared on Yahoo via Reuters.
For those of you that don't know Jonah, he's an amazing individual. Following the completion of his 12 week Recon training he was awarded the Man of Honor medal for having the highest overall score of the 60+ men he trained with. He's an overachiever that looks you straight in the eyes when he's talking to you and expects the same in return. He loves to fish and surf but right now he's loving serving his country and we're all grateful.
Thanks Jonah, I miss you very much, Piper and I pray for you every night. Come home soon! Actually, Shannon prays for you as well as her parents and our entire church. I know you're in good hands but everyone still misses you a lot. Do what you have to do and we'll see you soon.
