My Story

Spc. Evan Mettie, injured in Iraq 01-01-06

The outpouring of care and concern from family, friends, and the community has been tremendous. Denise, his sisters (Kira and Breanne), and I have been humbled and very appreciative of this response from all.

Be sure to read the latest in the journal, and drop us a line in the guestbook.

New Years Day 2006, while coming in from patrol Evan's unit stopped their humvee to investigate a car. They had received intel that a bomber was going to hit the market place that day. When the cars driver was challenged by Sgt's Bishop & Collin, he blew himself up. Evan was in the gunner's position and took shrapnel to the left frontal/side of his brain, he was reported killed in Action, they lost Sgt. Bishop and Sgt. Collin was severly injured. God was with Evan, as he continues to be, it was not his time. A new journey begins for Evan, please join us in prayer for strength and guidance.
