The Wann

TheWann formely known as the Airman in Iraq blog, since I am no longer in Iraq I decided to make this still for family and friends, with a wider stretch of thoughts for anyone else.

10:01 AM - ...and then not so good times...

Well in my previous post I wrote about good times, man that was fun! and it hardly seems like it happened that long ago.
When a squadron comes to Iraq its not like us where I am the only one from my base, they all come here in good size numbers. Often times they have worked with each other for several years if not their entire military career, which can often times happen to those in the Guard and the Reserves. Most everyones biggest fear of coming to Iraq usually isn't that they die but one of their good buddies that they have worked side by side with for so long may die. Then often you think about you getting hurt. But one thing that almost never comes to mind is someone back home getting hurt or dieing. Recently one of our squadrons had someone back home die suddenly and this person had been with this squadron for over 25 years. Everyone was effected but as they say the mission must go on. So after a great service and some words and some time to reflect it is time to dust yourself off, get up and think about it back home. Unfortunate but if not no one would be getting anything done. So when you keep all the service members in your prayers and thoughts please keep the spouses, friends and other family members back home in them also. It is a hard time for them also.

Thanks for your kind post. Many of the senior enlisted folks who knew her well were deeply saddened. I came prepared to do a memorial for someone falling over here, but I was ill-prepared for a loss back home. God was with us and blessed us with His presence.
