My sincerist condolences to the family of Airmen 1st Class Elizabeth Jacobson.
I retired from the US Navy in June 2002 after serving my final year with US Central Command at MacDill Air Force Base in Tampa, Florida. Our group was the first to go to the Middle East in Sept 2001 after the attacks on our country on 9/11. In my 22 years of Naval Service I served in Beiruit, Grenada, Operation Desert Shield/Desert Storm and Operation Enduring Freedom.
My cousin Master Sergeant Donald Clark USAF (Moody Air Force Base, GA) is currently serving in Bhagdad and another cousin PFC Barry Briggs US Army is serving with the 101st Airborne and is stationed in Kabul, Afganistan.
My heart goes out to you. Elizabeth will not be forgotten.
Bradley P. Stenstrom
Petty Officer First Class
