PFC Jeff Estlack
PFC Jeffrey Paul Estlack was deployed to Iraq with 1st CAV DIV
615th ASB bravo company (from Fort Hood TX) in Feb 2004 and was able
to come home for 2 weeks in Oct 2004 to see his son come into the
world. When his son Paul was 9 days old he had to go back to Iraq. I
remember it like it was yesterday. Jeff was holding Paul and they
both had on desert cammies. Jeff is his uniform and Paul in his hat
and bib that matched. We walked around and we both held back tears.
A kind lady walked up and asked if he was going overseas and we said
yes she said she would pray for him and said a simple thank you and
that's when reality hit. He was leaving and he had to go soon. we
both checked the board and his plan was on time and he needed to go.
We both took a deep breath and said our goodbyes. It was a sad
moment but I stayed as strong as I could. I didn't want him to feel
worse than he already did. So we kissed and hugged one last time and
I had to walk away. I don't think I made it 2 steps before the tears
fell. I still cry when I think about it today, a year later. But he
came home in one piece 6 months later and now we are happy healthy
and together again as a family!
I love you with all of my heart. Thank you for all that you do, I
could never repay you for the time you had to be away fighting for
Jeff is now currently in the National Guard in Prince Frederick MD!

silences foes with their firey blast of cannon, rocket and missiles.
