A Change of Command

I just have to send a little shout out to my husband who had a memorable day today as he finished his tour in Kapisa with his change of command.  I'm so proud!!!  I love you, Curtis!!

The commander of Provincial Reconstruction Team Kapisa, U.S. Air Force Lt. Col. Curtis Velasquez, talks with the sub-governer of Koh band District, Afghanistan, about future projects for the PRT and the future of the region. The PRT routinely performs missions throughout Kapisa to interact and engage with local leaders. The PRT's mission is to stabilize the region by enabling local governments to care for, educate, employ and protect their people through the construction of basic infrastructure and mentorship.

He's not headed home quite yet...a couple more months doing some staff work and reports about the last year.  Then he'll be headed to D.C...yes, that's not where I live, so we'll have a bit of a love-commute.  Luckily he likes to drive!  haaaaaaaaaaaa

If you're interested, here's a link to a Photo Essay on some Kapisa operations.


  1. Thank you, Curtis, for your time away in service to us who are so lucky to have soldiers like you serving our country. Jen, I know how long these deployments are and how hard it can be to be separated from our loved ones. It's almost over! And really, a little 'commute' is nothing at all like half a world away. Yeah!

  2. Congrats to him! And so nice for you that he will be back in the States at least in due time.
    Have a great Sunday!

  3. That's good news Jen. We are proud too! Keeping them all in our prayers. Thanks for the link to Kapisa.

  4. Congrats to your husband on his change of command!

  5. Congratulations to your wonderful husband! I am so happy for you that he will be on his way back to the states.

  6. Welcome back NightCat! Visit soon!

  7. So happy he's coming home safe and sound and will be close enough to see often.

  8. What a great shot of your hubby! I can just hear your pride for him...we are all proud of him for serving our Country as he has. I can imagine how hard it has been to be separated, especially as newlyweds. And hey, since he'll be up here in my neck of the woods, we'll all have to get together when you come up! Deal?

  9. Congratulations to both of you. I'm sure you can't wait for him to be back in the states. I will continue to keep both of you in my prayers. And thanks for all you both do to preserve our freedom.


Thanks for coming by...I would love to hear what you think!
