6/15/07 - Something going down in Iraq?
I am most definitely *not* a gossip type person but I thought I would share something with you.
Now this is completely supposition on my part so if nothing comes from it .. well dont blame me
As some of you might remember my brother is a fighter pilot (did a post a long time ago about him graduating from Sheppard and how I learned I'm not destined to fly) and he is currently stationed in Iraq. This is his 3rd tour there (with a couple tours in Afghanistan in between).
To make a long story short, he is a rather non-communicative sort of person. Him and I can go 6 months w/out talking to each other w/out a hitch and he rarely communicates with our sister while on tour accept for the occasional "Hey, I'm alive... I'll write more later" (and he favors her a lot more than me :P).
Anyway, both my sister and I recieved the following email this morning at exactly 7:02am PST:
Just want to let you know, whatever you hear on the news, i am doing just fine.
And thats it.
Now we have never gotten anything like this from him before. And to quote my sister:
This is very different than anything I've received before, so I'm sure something "big" happened. I'll let you know more when I find something out.
Anyway... if this turns out to be something (and lets hope its nothing) lets pray that our troops are ok out there.
