Janine Strange: Mission 67

…here is Mission 67!  
https://americasveteransstories.com/wwii-project/john-coates-82nd-airborne/ Wish this Desert Storm Vet a Happy 56th! Desert Storm Thomas Lynch lives in Louisville, KY, and will be turning 56 on January 23rd.  Learn about Thomas and his service:  Served: Iraq 1990-1991

His wife sent this note to me: Based at Fort Knox, Thomas was in Iraq during 1990-1991 for Desert Shield / Desert Storm. His cav unit 5 &17th attached to Big Red One, 63 Delta artillery self-propelled
field artillery E4 specialist at the time. He still fusses about having to work on the Bradley’s because they always threw tracks in the sand. He drove at night when only a pair of night vision goggles mounted to the roof of the vehicle was utilized.

Thomas grew up in Mount Washington, Kentucky, after he and his sister were adopted together at age 12. He is a welder/fabricator and has a knack for bringing out the best in people. Currently gutting and renovating our house by himself. We have 3 rescue pitbulls and 1 very spoiled American Bully.  Thomas is my everything.

  1. I forgot to add: The 1st Infantry Division is a combined arms division of the United States Army, and is the oldest continuously serving division in the Regular Army It also was a 1980 movie, The Big Red One, with Lee Marvin.

    1. Thanks, Priscilla. We are in the 5-7 inch range, with the snow/freezing rain/sleet mess. Enough to make me want to move back to California. How about you? I do have a new Kindle book to read….You may know the author. LOL.

      1. Ours looks more like freezing rain. it was supposed to be a foot of snow. Ya never know with the weather! Aw, thanks for reading my story.:-) I’m reading a huge Gothic romance called Barren Devotion by Carrie Dalby. Dalby is really good at research, so I’ve learned a lot about Mobile AL in the early 1900s.
