Hopefully you will hear from him in the next couple days. I'm sure he is ok, just out on patrol or somewhere in the field right now. Will pray for him and his safety just the same. Keep us posted Kuma when you do hear from him.

No news is good news. Once while deployed, we came under mortar fire while I was on the phone with my wife. She heard the first two rounds hit before the line went dead mid sentence. Since there was a fatality, all communication was shut down until the family was notified. The Army does this so that word doesn't get to the family before their formal face to face notification does. Long story short, my wife and parents spent a week looking out the window waiting for men in uniforms to show up. When I finally got to make a call home, they were a nervous wreck.

Stay the course. He'll be home before you know it.

Thanks....we had this same situation about a month/half ago when he lost one of his Brothers but we heard from him soon after it happened! We hope to see him come home in May....I'll walk if I have to just to welcome him home with our Daughter-in-law and Grandkids!!

Heard from Jake today and all is well. Some things been going on but he and his soldiers are safe. He did send me this pic of some practice shooting he did yesterday, not bad at 328 yards?

Thanks for all the prayers and concerns all!! We are all feeling relieved.

When I was deployed I went weeks at a time without talking to the folks back home. As others have said, no news is good news.... That being said he could very well be in River City.

Glad to hear he is doing good. Thank him for his service. A good friend of mine has a son that will be deploying next week. I watched this young man grow up and to say I am worried is an understatement. I pray daily for all deployed to return home safely
