One man's view of the world, from the top of this great big rock somewhere in the middle of God's Country, with an eye toward freedom....or at least some way to get back down without goin' over the edge.

R.I.P. A1C Elizabeth Jacobson

Please take a moment, friends, to stop in at Slaglerock's house and pay respects to the memory of Airman 1st Class Elizabeth Jacobson, the first female Airman to render the ultimate sacrifice for her country in the war on terror in Iraq.

I was also assigned to Goodbuddy Airpatch many years ago, back before Operation Desert Storm. I did not know A1C Jacobson, of course, but I can attest that they train good people there.

Godspeed your journey home, Airman.
Oh---and say "hi" to my dad when you get there. I let him know you were coming, and he said he'd keep the landing lights on for ya.

Raise 'em up, y'all. [CLINK]
