One more night

I have my flight out tomorrow morning at 0715 to fly me directly back to Camp Victory where my chain of command can pick me up:) So that means one more night of sleeping in the ward for me. Not too bad, though I have slept on more comfortable beds hehe.

Thank you for doing what you do. I pray that you are safe in the days to come. You are why I am PROUD to be an American.

Hey SGT Lizzie,

Sorry to read about you getting wounded over there, but glad to hear you will recover just fine. We certainly don't want any terrorists messing up that pretty face.

I'm an old Army vet myself, and when I read about the great job you young troops are doing in Iraq and Afghanistan, I wish I was still in. I guess I feel a little guilty.

I write my own blog too. it's at http://christian-patriot.blogspot.com It's mostly faith and politics, so it may not interest you too much. But, I keep a few things for my kids to play with at least. So, if its' not your cup of tea, scroll down to the bottom. I'd be happy to swap links with you anyway...

I'm impressed that you are totally Hooah and ready to return to duty ASAP. May God bless and keep you safe. Oh yeah, and next time, DUCK!

Last night? Hmmm ... Shouldn't we be having ice cream or something to celebrate?

Yeah, I know. Don't worry. It'll be here when you get here. :)

Sgt. Lizzie,

I'm happy to see that you're in such good spirits, and looking forward to getting back to your unit. You've got a lot of heart!

Not to put a damper on your positive outlook, but if you ever start having nightmares, anxiety attacks, or trouble sleeping after this event, drop me a line -- I know some of the experts in this field. It's not uncommon, or even a sign of weakness; just part of being a soldier. Don't be afraid to ask for help if you need it.

Best wishes to you and your unit, and a speedy recovery, too!

Lizzie - I'm glad you're on your way to Camp Victory. So...you won't be kissing any boys in the near future. That's ok. Let'em work for it! Stay safe and no more 'forgot to duck medals' for you. You have a great sense of humor which I find is necessary to get through the tough times in life. That, a higher power and maybe a little vodka. Get well soon!

Sgt. Lizzie:

I have recently returned from the International Zone after about 6 months working on infrastructure reconstruction. The professionalism and dedication of all you young soldiers was remarkable. I am in awe that morale is so high amidst such difficult circumstances. I wish you a quick recovery and a safe trip back to the states.

Dear Sgt. Lizzie,
I would have written sooner, but I lost your URL! I am also so glad that you are alright. I will be looking for your next post. I have you linked to my site now. Thank you for all that you do for us. Thank you for your sacrifices. You are a true American, and God bless you. If I don't hear from you before, Merry ChristMass!
