    not sure what is up with this but on the off chance it is true....He'll need all the help he can get

    This was sent to me from a friend.....please pray for Chad.


    Please don't break this prayer chain.

    From: Vicky Field - Granbury, TX.

    My son has been shot in Falujah..I wanted to get everyone to pray for my son Chad. Today, Sunday, I got a call from the Army that my son had been shot in the head. I am asking for all your prayers.
    He was in a Humvee going through Falujah fighting and a gang
    of militia fighters fired on the Humvee and hit Chad in the head. The driver got him out of the city and took him to Baghdad. He was in fatal condition, but now has been upgraded to stable critical. His dad and I are on standby to fly to Washington then on to Germany as soon as the military calls us to go. The Army is trying to stabilize him enough to fly to Germany and at that time we will leave. Please pray that my son will not have brain damage and that he will be restored and healed ! by the blood of Jesus, and the grace of God. I ask for you to pass this prayer request on so there will be many prayer warriors praying for him.

    Thank you so much and I will try to keep you updated on his condition.
    God Bless

    At SouthernMoss' side forever!
    This is a true story, except for dates. He was injured in late November 2004.

    Here is a part of Snopes write-up with later details:

    In May 2005, the Hood County News reported that Chad's injury was fortunately less severe than initially thought, and that he was making a rapid recovey:

    "Six months after Army Specialist Chad Snowden received a near fatal head wound fighting in Fallujah, Iraq, he is making plans to enter the University of Texas in Austin. Six months ago, Nov. 13, 2004, a sniper's bullet hit Snowden just above and behind the left eyebrow. It exited the right side.

    Because only a small part of the brain was damaged or destroyed, Snowden did not lose his mobility, nor senses, only some of his mental capabilities.

    Recovery continued to be rapid. In weeks he was ready to be transferred to a military rehabilitation trauma brain injury hospital. His transfer from Walter Reed Hospital to the needed rehabilitation center was being delayed, possibly for months, by the overload of paperwork required for transfers. Snowden’s mother, Vicki Field, was in Washington with her son. The prospect on his needed treatment being delayed ignited her into action.

    Because of Field’s driving concern for her son, she has been employed by the Department of Defense in a new operation to see that no severely wounded and disabled veterans or survivors are not [sic] lost in the paper shuffle. She is the Texas Advocate for Support of Severely Injured Military Residing in Texas. What she does is seek out wounded and injured veterans and families needing available assistance from government agencies and communities."

    Snopes concludes with, "
    Undoubtedly Ms. Field would appreciate continued prayers on her son's behalf as his recovery progresses."

    Our prayers will go up for him to continue with his healing and his education.
