'A great dad, loyal friend'

My husband Jason has been in Iraq since June 18 2007. He is a 33W, Intel Systems maintainer/repairer. He is serving as a platoon SGT with 10th Mtn 2nd BDE Special Troops Battalion. Before he left we had a BEAUTIFUL baby boy (after 3 girls) and he was able to spend 6 weeks with him. He is a great Dad, loyal friend, Strong, Kind and my best friend. He is currently at Camp Victory and will be coming home in November. I love him SOOO much and we are all SO proud of him!

That is my brother. He has always been there for me and there is no one I love more than him. Everyone can not wait to see him again. Much love from the Olean family. We love you and miss you!!!!
Every weekday morning on Headline News' Morning Express, anchor Robin Meade and her team do a shout-out to U.S. troops by showing off photos and videos sent in by their loved ones. Tune in every hour between 6 and 10 a.m. to see the salutes on air, or click through the archives on this page.
