You May Be Able To Save A Life

Tuesday, April 24th, 2018

I received this note from a friend earlier today.

We’re looking for ethnic Korean donors to help save a dear friend’s life. If you were a Marine posted at Quantico there’s a good chance you received dental care from Naval Dentist Lt. Julie Jung. Post-military she provided free dental care to children from low-income families and child victims of trafficking and violence. Lt. Jung was diagnosed with an aggressive form of Leukemia in January (AML with FLT3 mutation) and urgently needs to find a bone marrow donor match. Julie’s life expectancy is only 2 months after her last round of Chemo which she is starting soon.  Her husband Lt. Cmdr Jung is still active duty.  Unfortunately, matches usually come from someone’s own ethnic group. If you have any Korean in your ancestry, please join the donor registry to see if you are a match at https://join.bethematch.org/fl. A testing kit will be sent to your home, and all you need to do is swab the inside of your cheek and send

the kit back. Your help is greatly appreciated!

Operation Eagle Claw

Tuesday, April 24th, 2018

Today marks the anniversary of Operation Eagle Claw. In the early morning hours of 25 April, 1980 President Carter announced to a stunned world that the United States had undertaken an ambitious raid into Iran to liberate 52 American hostages held illegally at our Embassy compound in Tehran. Unfortunately, Operation Eagle Claw was unsuccessful and we lost eight American servicemen in a horrible aircraft ground collision. Join me in remembering their sacrifice.

However, their deaths were not in vain. The hostages were eventually repatriated and the accident was the watershed event that created, over the next several decades, the world’s preeminent Special Operations capability; USSOCOM and its components. We wouldn’t be where are today without the determination of that fledgling task force. Join me in remembering those that had the guts to try.
