Landing into a war zone

A brand new baby girl born on a United States Air Force evacuation flight was given the name Reach, which is the plane’s call sign, according to a U.S. general on Wednesday.

The child was born to her Afghan parents while on an American C-17 plane flying from Qatar to Ramstein Air Base located in Germany, U.S. European Command head Gen. Tod Wolters explained.

“As you can well imagine, being an Air Force fighter pilot, it’s my dream to watch that young child called Reach grow up to be a U.S. citizen and fly United States Air Force fighters in our Air Force,” he went on to say.

Two other children were reportedly born in Germany following U.S. evacuation efforts.

“All three babies are good,” Wolters stated.

With all of the horrific things happening in Afghanistan, it’s nice to hear a story where things actually went the right way. A child is a miracle, a beacon of hope that things might be better in the future.

If we all take our roles as parents seriously, instilling solid, godly principles in our kids and going the distance to love and care for them, then years down the road, they will be equipped to help restore America to her former glory and preserve the liberty we cherish.
