My brother was in this building when it was bombed ~ Updated with a message from my brother

I posted this 2 years ago. My brother’s wife has covid-19 now. He told me yesterday that she is beginning to feel better and he has gone back to work. Prayers for my brother and his bride are much appreciated!

A Blog About Healing From PTSD


Twenty-four years ago, on June 25, 1996, my brother was in this Khobar Tower building when it was bombed. In fact, he was outside on the balcony, smoking a cigarette, just moments before the bomb went off. He walked inside his room and seconds later, the balcony that he had just been standing on was gone.

My brother was in the U.S. Air Force, there on a peace keeping mission. In the aftermath of the bombing, he helped pull the bodies of his fellow Airmen out of the rubble, young men that he had just finished training.

Every year at this time, my brother is haunted by the memories of what happened on this day. A couple of days ago, he changed his Facebook profile picture to this picture of the blown out building.

Please say a prayer for my brother. He is a newlywed, married less than a month…

    Your brother’s response mimics those who truly wear the uniform for those who went before them and not for themselves. Praying for your brother and his wife.
