Default still hanging in there!

Greetings everyone! I'm still going strong here (at least trying to). We've been pretty busy here lately with the push into Fallujia and all. Got a bit of bad news here. My wife and baby girl were in a car accident yesterday in Wilson, NC with the PT. My wife, baby girl, our 2 friends and their baby are doing well. No major injuries except for my sanity here overseas. Not sure if they are going to total the PT or not. Lady that hit her was coming off of I-95 and my wife was stopped at a stopsign and the lady was looking at oncoming traffic instead of infront of her and plowed in to the left rear bumper and quarter panel. Luckily, none of the glass was shattered because my baby girl is still in a rear facing carseat! We are making the lady's insurance company (State Farm) pay for everything. I've been a total wreck since last night, but i'm just glad everything is ok. When i get more info, i'll pass it along. Looks like i'll be getting my PTeazer roll pan after all!

JW, our thoughts and prayers are with you and your family. The only thing worse than having your family involved in an accident is not being able to be there to help them.

I know this is especially true in your case since your daily job is helping other soldiers.

I know it is tough, but hang in there.

Thanks for your service to our country!

Hang in there, JW, as you are certainly dealing with difficult situations at work and home. Glad there were no serious injuries in the accident and your family is okay. I know it must be extremely difficult for you being so far away from home at a time like this. The Cruiser can be fixed like new, and, in the process you should be able to get the other party's insurance company to pay for much of the cost to install those MODS you want for your car. Good luck and thanks for your service to our great country.

Our hearts and minds are also with you and your family. My 18 year old "baby" girl enlisted in the Air Force in June and is currently stationed in Okinawa for 2 years. AMMO. IYAAYAS.

Stay safe my friend and thank you ever so much for your service.

JW, stay safe and bring em back kickin', I spent almost 25 years in the Air Force and I loved every bit of it. My thoughts and prayers to you and your squadron mates!

RJ, I hope your "baby" spends her entire tour in Japan, but the way things are going she is bound to get an AEF rotation to the sandbox. Keep the positive waves flowing.

Thanks Batman

We cannot help but worry about her, but she is well trained and ultimately, like all of us, is in God's hands.

av19, Please know all of us that know your background and what you and others are doing, have all of you in our thoughts.

Hopefully all will be well with your family , I know it's must be driving you a little "nutty" not being able to be with them. Do you or your wife have family nearby, who can give her moral support?

The PT can either be repaired or replaced, but injuries are a altogether different situation.

Hang in there, and GOOD LUCK!!!![^]
