'We are all thinking about her'
This is my friend Marine 1st Lieutenant Nikki DeLand. She is my friend from college. She is a prior-enlisted Marine Lieutenant. She has been over in Al-Anbar province as an Air Support Controller. She has been over there since July. She is based out of Cherry Point, NC, in MASS-1 (Marine Air Support Squadron 1). I just want to know that we are all thinking about her back here in State College and we hope that she stays safe. 2nd Lt. Esther Gomez, USMC
