Oh Rhonda, Im' so sorry. No I know you must be scared to death. But Jake certainly sounds more than qualified to handle himself, and he is obviously truly doing what he LOVES to do. Hang in there mama! We're all here for you. grouphug

Jake posted on his face book that he immediately regrets this decision....seems he just found out yesterday where he was actually going.....I don't know how they can get away with this.....young men and women sign up for Qatar knowing it is a safe (safer) place to go, only to find out they are actually training for Afghanistan....Apparently some of the guys in his unit are completely stupid and haven't a clue what is going on.....one actually lost his weapon and they were in shut down for the night.....can't imagine being around people like that.....

Oh Rhonda, how upsetting. It's understandable they must go where they are needed, but to surprise him like that isn't right. You and the boys continue to be in my prayers.

I know, Rhonda. I'm so sorry...I know this is frustrating. I was just trying to make you feel better. No {{{HUGS}}}

Jake says the unit he is in is full of idiots and that is something you do not want when you are out in the field......someone who hasn't a clue as to what is going on...As Jake's wife said today while we were talking, "It's not like this is their first rodeo." That is something you would do in basic training and then be fully reprimanded for that stupidity, but when you have been in for a while and getting ready to be deployed, you had better be keeping up with your weapon.....helllllloooooo...... banghead

Jake departed out 4 am Friday morning and has arrived at his destination in Afghanistan. Ironic he should arrive on the 11th anniversary of the war there. He has already posted on his face book about the "Stars and Bars" flying high over in terror land. The time difference is 9.5 hours without the daylight saving time that we will get later; which at that time, we will fall back, adding another hour to the time. As I type this, he is in the early evening of his day. probably on down time, which would be why he is on the computer.....I ask everyone to pray for him and the rest of the troops serving over there at this time of uncertainties there.....thank you.

Those are awesome! In the first photo the bird looks like he has a smile on his face.
Jake looks good, so glad.
