Hey my Good FRIENDS!

Holy Cow! I am so excited that I was able to meet up with you guys. You guys seem to be doing so well, and so happy I am glad for all of you.

Well I am sure you are all intrested where life has led Well we are now living back in Brigham City, (I know its odd) lol Well my husband was in the Army for the past 5 years, he was in the Infantry. We were stationed in Alaska, at Fort Wainwright (Fairbanks) We love ALASKA! Yes it would get down to -50 to -67 every winter, its crazy! But we miss it, and would do anything to go back. Kurtis went to Iraq, and was there for 17 1/2 months. I know crazy right. Well he was on his way back home, 2 days from my doorstep, and thats when Donald Rumsfelt EXTENDED them for adittional 120 more days. They started the Surge into Baghdad. That is when our life changed forever. Kurtis' company was ambushed, and kurtis plus 12 others from his squad were seriously injured, and 2 were KIA. Now he is home, and doing better than he was, but then he got Severe PTSD, and was medically retired from the army due to all of his complications. I told him well there are not many 28 year olds that have a Military So we are back here putting our life back together. Kurtis is going back to school, in audiology. I finished my Bachelors in Respitory Therapy.
But despite our trials, we loved the military, and glad we served. We have 3 children. Kayla is almost 7, and Turner is 3 and Allie is almost 2. So you can guess I am busy! I stay home with them, and are doing more classes online, ( who knows where I am going with it. lol) Just to stay busy. Anyways, I am so glad that I was able to meet up with this blog! Cannot wait to hear from you all! Remembering the Good ol' Days!

Love ya all,
Amber Edelman (Hall)

Crazy, I do not think I have heard from you since we were in band together back in '98 or so. It is good to hear from you again.

BTW, don't worry, I live in brigham still too. Nice place to live if you can stay entertained at home. the night life in brigham ends at 4:30 PM

Wow, you have done a lot in 9 years! It is probably nice to be in Brigham for awhile, and give yourselves a chance to let life slow down a bit. I hope things go well for your husband. I admire anyone who can go through something like that. Do you like working in respiratory therapy? That's cool that you and your husband are both going into health fields. Sounds like your kids are growing up quickly too. It's good to hear from you.

LOL- Blen. Although I agree that there isn't a night life in Brigham, I love the way you phrased it ;)
