The Eagle is Soaring

After 1 year and 2 weeks at Walter Reed, Captain Jason D. Scott is medically retired from the United States Army and as of Novemeber 2, 2006 was driving to Florida and to his new apartment home with Jodi Bower in Orlando Florida. Jason called his dad from somewhere near Richmond Va. on route to Jodi and the "First Day of the Rest of Jason's Life."

Jason Scott and Jodi Bower: 1506 Greenwood, Orlando Fl 32801

Jason returned to WR on July 5th to begin to be outprocessed by the army. He was hoping for the shortest "turn around time" for all the paper work which would have been Oct 1, 2006. The army being the bureaucratic system we all know it is took a month longer. This was one "prayerful mom" during this time asking that Jason be retired as soon as possible.

Jason of course could not start the University of Florida Business School this year, but is number one on the list for entrance for next year 2007. I am very happy that Jason will have this year to continue healing and rebuilding his muscles and nerves and time for re-entry into civilian life. Jason told his dad that he was up to "four miles on the treadmill." That is great news!

Jason and Jodi have a new pet...a hedgehog, I will try to get the picture to the blog. I call the hedge hog Alive Clive, remember his healing mascot? Jason wrote, "Newest grandchild, Clive likes plasma tv's for a shower gift." So if anyone out there would like to indulge Clive, feel free to do so. This grandma is taking a pass on the plasma tv!

Could someone send me Jason's current mailing address or email (I take it that the Walter Reed address is no longer valid)? I'm a friend from his NRW days in San Francisco, and I can't believe that I'm *just* hearing about all this.

Jason, I'm incredibly sad that this happened to you...and at the same time profoundly grateful that there are real heroes like you in our world. This is so typical of you and what you are about: fighting for those who cannot, or are afraid to, fight for themselves.

I can't begin to fully say how proud I am to know you. I'm confident you will recover well, being one who never gives up, and I wish you and your entire family a nice Thanksgiving. I know what I'll be thankful and praying for this holiday season...

I feel like a dirtbag for not writing earlier, but I've been following the progress and was shocked when I saw that Jason now lives approximately 15 miles from my house in Orlando! So I called the number posted to see if he wanted to get together or have lunch sometime and the lady who answered had no idea who Jason Scott was.

My email is hwallner at hotmail, I'm going full time at UCF and finals are this week, but then I'm wide open until spring semester starts in January. Hit me back and lets get together!

Thanks for everyone's comments.
I do not check the blog very often.
I am sorry. A lot is going on in my personal life right now. I will see Jason and Jodi at Christmas, I hope.

Harlan, Jason has asked not to give out his contact information. I will send him your email address.

thanks for your support and concern.
Katy
