Oh lordy. Today at lunch I was looking at my Facebook and saw that a few high ranking officers were killed in Afghanistan. I immediately text a friend of mine who is at Fort Drum, wondering if they knew who they were. The entire thing was unsettling.
I read on one person's blog once that they felt as though if someone was hurt or killed in a deployment they felt as though their husband dodged a bullet. I usually don't stress much, but I feel like at times its like a game of Russian roulette when they're deployed and are placed in dangerous situations. You just never know when or if they're going to get shot at, or hit that IED.
Then a couple of hours later I got a phone call later in the day from a number I didn't recognize. My stomach dropped. As much as I realize that being an FRG co-leader may cause me to get phone calls from numbers I don't recognize, it still makes me anxious. It wasn't a big deal, but for that split second it gave me a scare.
I know many of you do this already, but please continue to keep our men & women serving in your thoughts and prayers.
I know that I do, today and always.
I hear this song playing at work, and always think of the men & women that are currently away from their families....
And can only imagine this is thee way they feel sometimes.
