You make the environment.
If you want to be depressed then go ahead. Just remember one thing...
You chose for the people around you to make your life even worse.
Mama Mama look at me! See what the Air Force done to me!
You wanna be someone? Be yourself. There is a reason why you are you and not someone else.
Stand tall. You are the one who makes up who you are.
In Memory of A1C Elizabeth Nicole Jacobson
A1C Elizabeth Nicole Jacobson
While providing convoy security support on Wednesday September 28, 2005 in Safwan Iraq, Airman 1st Class Elizabeth Nicole Jacobson, 21, of Riviera Beach Florida, became the first Security Forces Airman to die in Operation Iraqi Freedom.
She died as a result of her vehicle making contact with an improvised explosive device (IED). Safwan is on the border of Iraq and Kuwait.
She is also the first female Airman killed in the line of duty in support of Operation Iraqi Freedom.
Airman Jacobson had been in Iraq for just over three months. “A1C Jacobson was a great troop…always sought the hardest challenges and never gave up. She worked very hard to get on the convoy section and had only been working it for a couple of weeks when the incident occurred. She was a bright and intelligent young lady who cared deeply for her country and the military.”
Airman Jacobson joins Airman Laura A. Lucas as the first Security Forces Female Airmen to be killed in action. Airman Lucas was killed in a non-combatant accident. Our prayers go to A1C Jacobson’s family and to our Security Forces Airmen at Goodfellow AFB Texas who have experienced a second tragic loss from their Security Forces family due as a result of hostile actions.
You know, when a person goes into the military, alot of things change. Your way of thinking changes. Your personality changes. Small things about you change. Even though I am no longer in the Air Force, I still think like a soldier. Being in the Jacobson Training Complex taught me so many lessons that as an individual I would never have learned. I never got to meet A1C Jacobson and I really wish I could have. Elizabeth Jacobson is my idol ...and after reading about her, I and a few of my wingmen in the 319th Jacobson Training Complex would have been best friends with her. One day, I WILL be as strong as her and I WILL take challenges head on like her. RIP A1C Elizabeth Nicole Jacobson. You are remembered.
I also believe in Love AND here is my QUOTE: ‘We’re only on earth for a little while, so live life to the fullest and carry a smile. ”
I had the priviledge to be stationed and live at the 319th Training Squadron, the squadron that has been dedicated to A1C Jacobson.
