Letter from Sgt D in the Stan!

Sgt D seems to sum up the plan for the war on this post on Blackfive.

Please take the time to read his letter concerning the state of affairs in the hot zones. I have to agree with him, it's time to let the dogs loose over there and stop tieing their hands!

Blog Updates

I have updated a few things on here, I added the scrolling breaking news ticker for the fire paging service that I volunteer for, plus updated and seperated my links.

Hope you like the new additions and maybe someday I will figure out how to change the way the whole page works. So check it out and don't forget to visit the links, especially our Ebay store! LOL!

RIP Barbaro


Today the great docs at U of Penn's New Bolten Center had to put a local legend to sleep. I live not far from New Bolten and have toured the facility, it is top notch all the way. The fence has been decorated with signs of encouragment for Barbaro but today his owners made the very tough decision to take away his pain and have him put down.

The State of My Union



Things here are busy so I haven't had much time to blog. Vicki is doing better but still restricted until we see the cardiologist on the 12th. So I have picked up the slack to help out. This weekend was interesting, I guess my part time boss put me on the S list for taking the weekend off that Vicki had her heart attack so I had to keep asking for hours this week. Well when he finally responded on Fri around lunch he had 2300 to 0700 available at a school construction site for Fri & Sat nite. So I spent my nites sitting in the car at a construction site, it wasn't so bad but it was cold Fri nite out there.

Meanwhile I did have a little time to read some of our friend Capt Mark's new book he's working on. Check it out Here

Also if you are making plans for this summer in my area check out Blue Crab Charters located in beautiful scenic Rock Hall, it's really not that far from the Philly area as far as travel time but it's worlds away from our hustle and bustle.

Meeting the Big Boss



Today I had a very distinct honor, I got to meet and shake hands with my commander in chief, the President of the United States. Whether you like him, his ideas, and his actions or not, he is still the President. He took a trip into Wilmington DE today and used our base as his jumping off point. So we saw the motorcade cruise out then we were able to form up a receiving line and shake his hand upon his return to Air Force One. It was a very cold and breezy day but it was worth it to get that once in a lifetime chance to shake the hand of my boss and have him wish me well on my upcoming deployment. His words to me and others were "Don't listen to the pessemists, what you are doing over there is important." I couldn't agree more and I look forward to heading over there and doing my part.

Disgusting!

This disgusts me to no end. It seems that a young Sgt in the 1st Cavalry Division stationed in Iraq needed some type of mats for him and his fellow warriors to use. So being a smart soldier he started looking for companies that offered a good price and who would ship to APO addresses, (military overseas). Well he sent an e-mail to a company called Discount Mats asking if they shipped to APO. They did not, which was fine, however in their e-mail reply they advised the Sgt that even if they did they would never ship to Iraq and told him if he was sensible that he and his troops would pull out! What a totally uncalled for and insensitive answer!

I checked the Discount-Mats.com webpage for contact info but they seem to be having technical difficulty, maybe they were taken over by the Taliban or something nice like that!

I did however find this info about the website ownership of discount-mats.com

Vicki Update

Vicki is at home and doing well. We are extremely grateful to the wonderful staff at Avondale EMS, Medic 94, and Christiana Hospital. We learned a lot with this ordeal and I am sure we will continue to learn more as we go along with it.

The one major thing we want to share are the symptoms of a heart attack especailly in Women. Just because you don't have the crushing chest pain that the TV has taught us is a heart attack you could still be having one. Her symptoms started as jaw and throat pain w/ no other symptoms, no nausea, no sweating, nothing like that. It didn't move into the chest for a while but she had 1 artery 100% blocked. The cardiac staff advised us that this is very common in women and the sweating and nausea most times depend on which part of the heart is involved.

So now we begin a new journey of new eating habits, more doctors, and stopping smoking. It will be a long road but we will get through it like we have everything else that has come our way.

Safe Journey Friends

Many of my friends and co-workers are heading to various places overseas, some are already there, some are in transit and others leave soon. Over the next few months others including me will be heading out as well. I ask that you keep them all in your thoughts and prayers as they journey away from home, family and friends to serve our great country and the greatest military in the world.

So Safe Journey my friends.

Cpl Jason Dunham - American Hero!



Many of us like to think that we would react bravely in the face of danger and do the right thing even if it meant giving our life, most of us will never be tested this way and will never truly know how we will act or react and if we truly are capable of doing the right thing. This young warrior was faced with that choice and reacted honorably and courageously.

Corporal Jason Dunham USMC will posthumously be awarded the Medal of Honor on Thursday 11 Jan 07 at the Whitehouse. It is fitting that his parents will receive their son’s medal. They too deserve a medal for raising such a fine young man who gave his life to save the lives of his fellow Marines. Back on 14 April 06 Cpl Dunham was leading 13 other young warriors in Karabilah Iraq. When they received word that another group of Marines had been ambushed and injured nearby. Cpl Dunham and his crew quickly responded to the area. The rest of the story is best told by Cassandra at I Love Jet Noise.

Corporal Dunham, a Job Well Done Marine. Semper Fi!

Mr & Mrs Dunham, thank you for raising such a fine young man and for his service as well as yours.

Until we meet on Fiddler’s Green, Carry On Marine, God Speed.

God Speed SRA Elizabeth Loncki

SRA Elizabeth Loncki was in Iraq saving the lives of Soldiers, Airman, & Marines everyday. As on of the few female EOD techs she was doing a very dangerous job in a very nasty place. Rest Easy Sister, until we meet on Fiddlers Green.

New Castle native killed in Iraq
23-year-old senior airman was trying to disarm bomb
By ANDRE L. TAYLOR, The News Journal

Posted Tuesday, January 9, 2007

Senior Airman Elizabeth A. Loncki
A 2001 Padua Academy graduate was one of three Air Force troops killed Sunday in a bomb blast near Baghdad, the Pentagon said Monday.

Senior Airman Elizabeth A. Loncki, 23, a New Castle native, was the first Delaware woman killed in the line of duty in Iraq and the 66th female American soldier killed there.

"She wanted to contribute to the country," said Loncki's aunt, Tina Masiello, adding that Loncki expressed no reservations about going to Iraq. "She was ready to go, it was a cause she deeply believed in. She told us not to worry."

Loncki, who was deployed to Iraq in August, was scheduled to return home in two weeks, her stepmother, Christine Loncki, said. Her boyfriend, Sgt. Jayson Johnson, who was stationed with her at Fort Hill Air Force Base in Utah, had planned to visit the family's New Castle home Thursday to ask her father's permission to marry her, Christine Loncki said.

Instead, Stephen Loncki got a visit Sunday afternoon from three men in uniform. He was taking down Christmas decorations at his New Castle home when they arrived.

"He knew right away what it was," Christine Loncki said.

Loncki's eldest daughter, they told him, died after her explosive ordnance disposal team was targeted by a car bomber near Al-Mahmudiyah.

Now, Johnson will serve as a military escort for Loncki's body as it is transported to the mortuary at Dover Air Force Base and prepared for burial. Her body is to arrive early this morning and remain there for at least 48 hours before she is turned over to her family in New Castle.

"She was a beautiful, beautiful child," a tearful Stephen Loncki said. "She loved her family and her family loved her. We miss her so much."

Loncki last spoke to her family on Christmas Eve, as she opened presents her father had sent.

"I sent her a DVD of a concert and some popcorn, and filled her stockings with a bunch of Christmas goodies," Stephen Loncki said.

"She sounded melancholy," Loncki recalled. "She knew her family was together and you could tell she felt far away. ... She was happy to talk to us, but a little sad, too, because she was so far away."

A faithful Catholic

Elizabeth Loncki attended St. Peter the Apostle grade school and graduated in 2001 from Padua in Wilmington, where she played volleyball. She briefly attended the University of Arizona before enlisting in the Air Force.

Masiello described her niece as a faithful Catholic who enjoyed rock music and swimming, and whose beauty belied an athletic toughness evidenced by her success on Padua's volleyball team and her ability to match boys push-up for push-up.

Her death brings the U.S. death toll in Iraq to 3,014, and comes during a week when President Bush is expected to announce plans to send more American troops into Iraq.

Killed in the same blast as Loncki were Tech. Sgt. Timothy R. Weiner, 35, of Tamarac, Fla., and Senior Airman Daniel B. Miller Jr., 24, of Galesburg, Ill. The three were assigned to the 775th Civil Engineer Squadron at Hill Air Force Base.

"There was a car with a suspected bomb in it they were investigating when it exploded," said Marilu Trainor, public affairs director at Hill Air Force Base.

Part of their mission

Trainor said Loncki was a member of the bomb squad, which would venture out into areas in and around Baghdad to investigate suspicious vehicles.

The bomb inside the car they were working on exploded while they were trying to disarm it.

"It's part of their mission every day," Trainor said. "It's not unusual for them to do these missions."

A military career, especially one charged with explosives, was a cause of concern for family. But Loncki tested well and was one of two women in a class of 16 who finished the training, her stepmother said.

"Elizabeth told me so many times, 'Don't worry about me. I'm going to be fine,' " Christine Loncki said.
