During her deployment to Afghanistan, which ended in March, Capt. Jenna Wilcox kept an on-line blog. Here are a few of the last entries she wrote before her fatal mishap:
  • "This deployment has been very wearing, and I feel a lot older (and have more gray hairs to prove it). I just have to stay focused until the very end, when I can kiss the (United Kingdom) soil ... and my sweet Scott."
  • "I am usually in a support role; my job ensures that planes get off the ground so they can fight the enemy. But this time, I was the one directly fighting the enemy. To the pleasure of my parents, that probably won't happen again."
  • "This will be my last entry. Both Scott and I are home, safe and sound."
