Re: Off topic: A horrible loss
I'm there with you. I have two very close friends over there right now. I just got to see one about a month ago, he was in town for two weeks & then got shipped to Iraq. It was the first time I'd got to see him in over a year. I've known him since we were 10 yrs. old.
The other, we were hoping he'd be home by now. They were doing practice jumps & for some reason his 'chute didn't open. He broke his back in four places. They said they were going to send him home, but decided that they needed him worse than we do. He said he's fighting in a body cast. He called the other day to tell us to keep watching the news, he couldn't tell us why.
My heart goes out to all, but specifically PFC Andrew Reagan and airman (don't know rank) Nathan Cantrell.
God Bless You guys & gals.
