Since then I've seen a great amount of support.. but I've also seen a large amount of disrespect and flat out hate towards the ones who press on into the sound of gunfire to keep those same people safe. I recorded this song and created this video in hopes that others will see what we go through. In hopes that just maybe some of you that hate us will begin to see our side.

Join the California Army National Guard. Serve your country and community, around the world or around the corner. The National Guard has a dual missions, federal and state. Our federal missions calls us to support missions around the globe. Our state mission is to respond to natural and man made disasters here in California. To Join the California Army National Guard contact Staff Sergeant Brito at 562.900.0575 or visit http://www.iguardcalifornia.com Capt. Andrea Ourada wears a 9mm Beretta semi-automatic pistol in a shoulder holster, wryly decorated with a pink "Princess" sticker. She also has good jewelry. The latest piece is a delicately wrought Combat Action Badge. The silver sword-and-wreath was awarded for direct-fire involvement as a Blackhawk helicopter pilot. Ourada's unit, the Army's 2-147 Assault Helicopter Battalion, recently flew a combat-conditions mission unique in American history: The mission—involving two Blackhawks, each with two pilots and two door gunners—was carried out entirely by women, right down to the pre-mission crew flight briefings. "It was exciting," says Ourada, 29. "But it was also routine. We're pilots—no problem. There isn't any question about our abilities." In the course of the yearlong mission in Iraq, the personnel of the 2-147 will get to go home once, for 15 days. For Ourada, this means getting back to the farm where she grew up, near the tiny town of Lucan in southwest Minnesota. "We had a dairy farm," she says, "and every day, no matter what else was going on, you had to do the chores." Ourada is the oldest of five children and the only daughter. Growing up around a bunch of roughneck brothers, Ourada says, "I never felt incapable of protecting myself. If I've got to fight, I'll fight." That strength was tested when Ourada's brother Daniel was killed in a horrendous automobile accident six years ago. She was serving in the National Guard at the time and was considering becoming a pilot, but the tragedy—and its effect on her family—wrenched her life into painful focus. Ourada always had been driven to excel, but suddenly it seemed much more important to have clear goals. When she was accepted to flight school, she decided to attend. Two years later, Ourada says, "I was right at the top of the class. Then came the second anniversary of Daniel's death. I went into a slump. I was having a really hard time. If I hadn't come out of it, I don't know what would have happened. But then Mom called. She said the whole family was coming down for my graduation. I thought, 'Oh, my god, I can't let them down.'" She graduated with honors.

After spending a good part of the day along the BNSF Chillicothe sub not far to the north I went to the Chillicothe Rock Island depot along the old Rock Island Peoria line (now Iowa Interstate Railroad) which is now preserved as a museum. Built in 1889 it was acquired by the Chillicothe Historical Society in 1982. It was the town's only museum until a house was acquired so the majority of the depot museum's artifacts are Railroad related. There is a Santa Fe caboose outside and a decent model layout depicting the area inside. Quite a nice place. I then saw a northbound on the Iowa Interstate Peoria branch which was a PESI led by 514 (ES44AC built 2014) and 700 (GP38-2 built 1972). I then ran into it again later in Bureau, IL where it had to wait for the CBBI. The CBBI was led by IAIS ES44ACs 511 and 509 (both built 7/2008) had mostly stacks and ethanol with a few hoppers.
