'Ready for take off'
My husband CW2 Scott Durrer is currently serving his second tour of duty in Iraq. Scott is an Apache longbow pilot. His birthday is August 19th.
This photo was taken sometime in 2005 while he was on his 1st tour to Iraq. Scott has been in Iraq for 3 months with 12 months left before this 2nd tour is over. He will be turning 27 on the 19th of this month. We are stationed in Savannah, Georgia at Hunter Army Airfield. He is with the 3rd Infantry Division. He has a daughter, Madison and a son, Warren, who also send their wishes for a happy birthday as well.
