Tornado ten years later

Byline: | Category: Uncategorized | Posted at: Tuesday, 29 May 2007

I’ve mentioned before that when I was deployed in Kuwait on the Iraqi border, the only time that I was scared was when I saw on CNN that tornadoes had struck the Fort Hood area.

My wife didn’t tell me until I returned home a month later that she and my one-year-old daughter were  just a couple miles from Jarrell when it happened.

That was ten years ago.

    Along the same vein….in January 1999 I had just arrived in Kuwait with my unit from Ft Campbell when we were called together and told that a tornado had destroyed much of downtown Clarksville. It turned out that no one in our group was personally affected, but our families had some wild and woolly stories to share about that storm.
