That's rough. I've had a few friends in the military that have been active or called back to active because of the war over there. One guy I met was on a bomb squad, and going back over a couple days after I met him-- his wife and I worked on the same convention each year, but I've not heard from either of them for over a year, so I don't know what his status is. Overall, it's a shame-- though we're still pretty firmly entrenched over there, much of the public has succumbed to the out-of-site, out-of-mind attitude about it. We get passing bits in the news, but as it's more of an "everyday thing" now, it no longer gets focus. I may not support the war (and the reasons for it, public or not), but I fully support those soldiers that are over there.

If nothing else, the best thing you can do is drop him a letter every now and then just to let him know you're thinking about him... that goes a long way for moral with the troops.
