BAQOUBA, Iraq – We like helping folks out here at FOB Tacoma. We also like recognition.

So when Sgt. Julius Gutierrez recognized Joe and I as we got off a UH-60 Black Hawk at Forward Operating Base Warhorse and asked to send a message to his in-laws in Spanaway, how could we resist?

Gutierrez, 35, is deployed with 3rd Brigade, 25th Infantry Division. He sends this message to his wife’s parents: “I hope you’re safe. I am coming home soon – and Jessica and I are coming to visit for Christmas this year.”

    WOOHOO!!! Scott, I think we should do more ‘shout outs’ from our people! lol…I know a lot of guys/gals that would love to say ‘hey!’ to someone other than their spouse/significant others—like the inlaws or parents! Sometimes they just don’t have time left on the phone to make more than 1 call home. ;)
    I know my mama’s always telling me ‘when’s he gonna call me???’ I just have to tell her ‘mama, he’s only got X amount of time on the phone–and you’re not always up that late like I am’. :)
