WOW! I can't believe it was the 18th of December when I last posted. With Jacob being home from about then until the 3rd of January.......well that pretty much sums it up. He is/was safely back home at Fort Bragg until yesterday. Actually he is still safe at home at Fort Bragg however, it appears he may be moving out shortly. His unit is part of the Global Response Force and he is expecting to be moving out sometime in the immediate future
You would have to be living under a rock not to know about the horrible earthquake in Haiti this week. It appears thousands may have been killed and homeless. Too be continued: 01/14/10 @ 2220 hours.
Continuing, 01/15/10 0854hours
I waited up most of the night on a phone call that never came. I am currently waiting on a text msg, phone call or confirmed report that my Black Falcon is heading to Haiti. I have been searching all my web sites for confirmation that his unit is in the air, on the ground, in place or what ever. My only clear source is that FOX news has just done a bit with Geraldo Rivera who is with a Col. Chris Gibson of the 82nd. Col. Gibson states they are just waiting on the airport to clear in Haiti so he can get his soldiers on the way. I guess if Geraldo Rivera says they are going that is the Gospel.
Well as of this moment I wait. And wait. And wait. It is the military way. It was 40 years ago and still is today. Some things never change.
