Americus- Bertha and Lawrence Hosley watched intensely as President Bush promised military action in as little as 2 days if Hussein doesn't comply... a military that includes two of their sons.

Brothers Greg and Anthony Jackson are in Kuwait, and even after hearing Bush's 48 hour deadline both parents are still praying for peace.

The couple prepares to send each son a greeting card to give them strength, something they say the boys also get from each other.

The Hosleys use a map to track their son's whereabouts and their prayers to bring them home. Two sons, two days, and hundreds of messages to God.

Both Greg and Anthony are in the U.S. Army and were called to serve in Kuwait for at least a year.

The Hosley's also have two nieces, three nephews, and a godson deployed in the Middle East.
