Its funny the things you remember when you get older. I was not much more than 3 when I was at the same wedding where my cousin was. At that time he was driving a BRIGHT RED Alfa. That started it all right then, the love of cars and RED toys. Not that I would ever be able to afford them. He went on to race for Ferrari. Unfortunately, not very successful. Many years later with the help of the internet, we got back in touch. Allan is now in his 80's, has children and grand hildren. He said the Ferrari scared the living S*** out of him beacuase it was so fast.

This past week he sent me a note, it said: It was an honor to offer the life of my only grandchild to the service of my country.

From Friday's Palm Beach Post:

On Wednesday, Airman 1st Class Elizabeth Nicole Jacobson of Riviera Beach became the first woman from Palm Beach County to die in the Iraq war when a roadside bomb exploded near her convoy.
Jacobson died near Camp Bucca, near the southern Iraq city of Safwan. She is the ninth Iraq casualty from Palm Beach County and the Treasure Coast.

How small those red cars now are in life.

Sir,

Words cannot express what you have lost or how I feel, I'm just not that good.

Please know that the very fact that our young people volunteer to serve this Country and it's ideals, to me is amazing, (they seem to take the easy way out of everything.)

I will say a prayer tonight for her.

May the peace of the Lord be with you and her family.

Maybe we could stop calling it the "Sand Box"? Kids play in a sandbox.

It hits home everytime a service member is killed in action, but when it's a member of your Security Forces family, it hits a bit harder. My thoughts go out to Elizabeth and her family, and I know she earned her right to somewhere special.

I tried to get info from another SFS I know, who knows her, as to where to send a card, but it's all being kept quiet. Any info, preferrably IM'ed to me would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you.

Defensor Fortis.
