Journey of a National Guard Soldier going Active

fallen soldier

Found out the other day that a soldier was killed on a convoy by an IED. It was a female SGT part of another company in our battalion, we escort them regularly. She was killed on a newly establish route by Bagdhad that was "supposed" to be safer. So much for that. They have a memorial service for her on the 15th. It's a sad deal. Over here we see it as the lottery you DON'T wanna win. 23-year-old SGT. Jessica Housby.

I saw a picture of her in the newspaper. Pretty girl. May her family and loved ones be given peace in their hearts with losing their lovely girl.

Jessie was more than a pretty girl. She was an angle. She was always happy and made the people around her smile. Jessie is my hero. Rest In Peace Jessie!
