I asked Kate to give us an update on how Paul is doing. Here it is:
He is doing well. He is at a base in Ghazni, Afghanistan and serves as the Orthopaedic surgeon on a forward surgical team. His job is to take care of American and coalition troops with broken bones from combat related trauma. He says it’s a good team of people and the food is not so bad – he never complains about anything! It’s hard to be apart, but it gives Paul peace knowing the kids and I have the best support system here in Goshen. I don’t know what I’d do without Jane and John and my parents. They have been the biggest help.
When Paul returns at the end of March, he will resume his job at Ft. Drum caring for the soldiers of the 10th Mountain Division. We will move up to Carthage, NY and FINALLY settle in to one place for a while.
We are both appreciative of the love, support and prayers from our family!!
Paul, we are amazed at your many accomplishments. Know that you and your fellow soldiers are in our hearts and prayers for a successful mission and safe return.
Here is Paul’s address:
