Saw son's birth via Webcam
I just wanted to salute my hero, my husband, Chief Warrant Officer 2 Brian Jacobson. He is currently serving his second tour of duty in Baghdad, Iraq. He is an OH-58D Kiowa Warrior Pilot with the 3rd Squadron, 17th Cavalry out of Fort Drum, New York. He is the proud new father of a one week old son, Barron, whom he witnessed being born via webcam. Barron and I are very proud of him and anxiously await his safe return home next year.
