I was in Security Forces and was in Baghdad, Iraq in 2005, just 16 miles away from where A1C Jacobson was stationed. For me, it really hits home reading her story. In her honor, I had a memorial bracelet made with her information on it, and will be telling her story to anyone that asks. Thank you to all the families that have had a loved one K.I.A. and my prayers will always be with you.
