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.”
