Jeff's Coming Home...on Friday!
Yea, Jeff is going to make it back from Baghdad! Got news for sure yesterday that Jeff will leave Baghdad after 17 months of active duty...away from is wife and the past year in Bagdad...the past five months away from his son. We feel so blessed to have him return. It looks like he's going to make it. Jeff will arrive in El Paso on Friday with his unit that he's served with in Iraq. Liz, Kacey and I will drive down on Thursday to be with Ashlie, Gentry, and Ashlie's family to wait for Jeff.
Jeff's had one of the most dangerous jobs in the theatre--a gunner on a an armored Humvee. He told me the other day on the phone that they are well trained...experts in what they are trained to do. We're so proud of Jeff. He's a warrior who followed in the footsteps of both his grandpas. I'd like to put myself in that lineage but my service in the Army Reserve was limited to cooking for the troops.
