Offficial Adam Stats

Adam sent me his flying stats.  Currently, he is #1 in flight hours.  I’ll let him tell you in his words

The number of hours Ive flown so far is 333.5. And as a squadron we have flown 2975. We have carried 19,000 passengers and moved 1.7 million lbs of cargo. Not bad I would say.”

He is exhausted and being asked to be taken off the flight schedule for a while.  I’m glad!  We’re about back to how much time we thought we had left when we got the news.  Only 7 weeks to go…unless they change it again! Ugh!

Hope this news finds all of you well.  I will try to write again soon.


Very sad news

I didn’t put this up yesterday because we’re pretty devistated with the news that just came out. Adam did not make the advanced party list. Even though he left before main body, he is “technically” not advanced party since he didn’t come with the very first group of guys. The list we had before had him and several other guys on it, but the wives got another list yesterday that was totally different. So, instead of coming back mid-September it will now be mid-October. We just doubled how long we had left.

It’s hard to talk about and I’ve been really depressed since I heard the news. What I wrote is pretty much all I know. There’s a lot of question marks. Adam is really upset too. So, for now that’s all either of us really have to say about the subject. Sorry for the brevity of this post…still getting used to the idea.

More ridiculous pictures…

Aaron sent Katy a camera full of pictures from Iraq and these jems were on it.
