Subject: Re: [CHAT] Sam now Jamie

You guys, I had to tell you all the great news. I got a phone call
today<br>from a very close friend. our friend Jamie was on his way home
after 6<br>months in Iraq. He was planning on surprising his wife. Their
whole family<br>is coming in this weekend for the 4th, but she wasn't
expecting him to leave<br>until the 7th. We all got to their house about
5:00. he called pretending to<br>be still in Iraq and asked to to look
for some papers for him in their<br>closet. as she was looking he was
walking down the hall talking to her. I<br>think she almost fainted when
she saw him. We all stood and cried, and<br>rejoiced that he made it
home in one piece. Their Blackhawk helicopter was<br>attacked on the way
out, and he finally made it to Germany and then the US<br>some 22 hours
after leaving Iraq.<br><br>Because the whole family is coming in, I took
it upon myself to make them a<br>reservation at a bed and breakfast
downtown for the<br>night................they left after visiting with
us for a couple of hours,<br>we fed him beer and pizza and chatted, but
then sent them on their merry<br>way. Jamie wanted roses sent to the
room for his wife so we took care of<br>that too. It felt great to be
able to do SOMETHIGN for him! I'm so happy for<br>them. And so thankful
that he and Sam made it home!<br><br>Just had to

He<br>knows<br>> he's lucky he made it out of that attack near Fallujah
alive.<br>> The poor kid has had trouble hanging onto duffles. When his
humvee was<br>> blown up near Fallujah he lost much of his gear,
including his PT shoes,<br>so<br>> he has had to do PT in boots for
months. Back in Baghdad at the PX he had<br>a<br

>> choice of size 8 or 16 shoes - I think he wears 12s. Now for his trip
to<br>> come home, the duffle of his clothes and odds and ends didn't
make the<br>> transfer in Kuwait so they sent it back to Baghdad. So now
he has to shop<br>> for clothes because the pants he left here at home
won't stay up.<br>><br>> I watched 60 minutes tonight which had a
feature on the many injured<br>> soldiers and it was very difficult to
watch. Geez, I hope things get<br>> straightened out.<br>><br>>
