or so they say.
I have not heard anything other than what the news is reporting. Right now, it looks like it was an MH-47, a Special Ops bird. I have it from a good source that it was not a Big Windy (Germany) bird.
Still no word from BIL but again, no news is good news. I wish they would get the details out so I could stop worrying. Even without worrying about BIL, I still worry...the Chinook community is so small. I'm bracing for the list of names to be released - that damn two degrees of separation sucks. Chances are, we either know the pilots/crew or know someone who knows them.
Either way, 17 families could use some prayers right about now. As relieved as I am that it is not OUR family, my heart aches for theirs.
And just when the scab was healing, it gets torn open again.
