One of my greatest fears with Mike's job is that his jet will malfunction and he'll go down behind enemy lines after ejecting. This happened to two F-15 pilots on Monday in Eastern Libya. Marines and several aircraft from the USS Kearsarge were called to rescue those two Marines and did so extremely quick. It's a huge comfort to read about how quickly we responded and had those pilots back safe. Here's the article.
I've had the news on a lot during this because I want to be informed, and AK has been picking up things here and there from it. Yesterday she asked me, "so what's going on in Olivia today?" :) She thinks the anti-aircraft shots are fireworks. Their innocence is so sweet.
I cannot wait until the operation is complete and Mike is away from it all. And when I can stop feeling paranoid with one ear tuned to the news all day. Only a few more weeks, and he is set to come HOME!!! I am elated at the thought of seeing his face and being in his arms.
