Greets all:

One of our Air Force Reserve recruiters, Robert Mobley, is fighting cancer. As someone who's battled cancer, I know how difficult lying in that bed contemplating the knowns and the unknowns. Sergeant Mobley deserves to win this fight and beat cancer. So, I'm going to ask a favor.

Sergeant Mobley's family created a Web site for well-wishers. That's us. So, take three minutes today, visit the Web site and write between 1 and 30 words of support. Tell him I asked you to do it. Tell him what you think. Tell him he'll be just fine.

Here's the address: http://www.caringbridge.org/visit/robertmobley

You'll see the 'guestbook' link fairly plainly.

ETA: And here's his address to send USPS stuff (cards, letters):


Robert Mobley
c/o National Institute of Health
Bldg. 10-CRC Unit 3 NW, Rm. 3-2648, Bed A
900 Rockville Pike
Bethesda MD 20892


When you read this note, tell a friend at AW and have them read this note. Then, have them tell a friend and so on. The key? Write Sergeant Mobley a note and wish him the best!

Thanks.

Jason

Hey Jason, is Robert in San Antonio?
He was a recruiter there. The military's moved him to Maryland for the treatment.

I added a note. I hope it feels for him more like a party than an AW avalanche... oh wait. That's six of one, half dozen of the other. Carry on.

Some final thanks before we close this thread. I got a nice note from one of his coworkers praising each and every one of you. Made a HUGE difference.

Again, thank you. Your military's morale just took an upswing. :)

(And please don't reply; we're closing this thread). :)
