Just got back from the Zaidon again. I really don't have time to put anything up right now, but I'll be back later. Take care.


  1. Great to hear from you Jake! We check daily!

    Can't wait to read your next post!


  2. Was just catching up on your blog, and am sorry to see that you think it will remain a secret. There are no secrets on the web.

    I had a similar experience with writing an e-mail to a friend about my 9/11 experience as a NYC firefighter... and her printing it in a local NYC Upper West Side paper. The names were changed to initials, but she left my name in the byline, and my fire company, and a stack of these papers arrived at the firehouse the next day... The repercussions at a time when sensitivities were extremely heightened caused for some severe blow-outs even though there was nothing bad or glorifying said. Just a straight telling of my experience that day. So on top of digging every couple days through that hellish pile of debris strewn with bodies and body parts, I was taking a beating back at the firehouse (most severely from my captain).

    But, that being said, I have no regrets... and you shouldn't either. You write a very real account of one man's experience in war. You should be proud, and later in your life you will definitely be glad that you wrote this account.

  3. Glad you're safe. I check in daily to see how you're doing. Stay safe, fight the good fight and take as many showers as you want!

    Thank you for your heroic service!
