A soldier returns home from Iraq (almost)
Nice to hear from Barry Zoeller, vice president of corporate affairs over at Tejon Ranch, that his son Jordan is now safely out of Iraq and on his way home. Jordan Zoeller is just one of countless local kids who have done their duty overseas, but I feel some kinship with the lad because Barry would brief us on his wellness over lunch at Rotary. (see earlier post here) In Barry's words:
"... belated thank you for your blog post mentioning Jordan's return to Bakersfield. I have an update for you. My wife and I were able to greet him last week when he returned to his base on Oahu. Needless to say, it was great to see him. He has quite a few stories to tell, including how body armor saved his life last Spring in Sadr City. After spending about a week-and-a-half at the base, he'll be coming home next Monday, March 23. He's scheduled to arrive at Meadows Field at 9:40 a.m.
Again, thanks for your support and your on-going interest in his well being.
