Soldier's worst fear realized
Not even her father knew what scared Jennifer Hartman the most

By Jason Brudereck
Reading Eagle

David Hartman didn't know what his daughter's biggest fear was until a few days ago when he found out she had a Web site.
And then it was right there in front of him on a computer screen.

The MySpace Web site asked what her fears were.

Her only response: “Getting blown up in Iraq.”

His daughter, Sgt. Jennifer M. Hartman, was one of three soldiers killed Sept. 14 when a vehicle containing explosives blew up near the place where they were stationed in West Baghdad, Iraq.

“I didn't know it was her fear to die there until I saw it,” said David, 41. “I started to cry all over again.”

Jennifer, 21, lived with her family in West Penn Township, Schuylkill County.

She is the first Schuylkill County resident killed in Iraq, a review of casualty records shows.

Jennifer was home for a visit in August with David; her mother, Bernice, 40; sister, Katie, 19; and brother, Brian, 17.

Jennifer's death has put their lives on hold, said David, a mechanic.

Katie was to start college this fall, but those plans have been delayed.

The family is concentrating on the funeral, which will be Saturday at Hartman Funeral Home Inc. in West Penn Township.

“We'll get the body this week,” David said. “The funeral is open for everybody. People keep asking what they can do. All I want to do is get a big turnout for her. She was the best kid in the whole world. I want to do the best I can do for her. The best I can do is get a crowd together.”

He said he won't speak at the funeral.

“What can you say about something like this?” he said. “Oh, it's just. Oh. What can you say?”

Jennifer called her family recently.

“It was two, maybe three, weeks ago,” David said. “She talked about how she hoped she'd be coming home soon.”

The family expected her to be home before the end of the year.

A 2003 Tamaqua High School graduate, Jennifer joined the Army shortly after graduation.

She was assigned to the 4th Support Battalion, 1st Brigade, 4th Infantry Division based at Fort Hood, Texas.

David said he enjoyed reading Jennifer's Web site on MySpace, the popular social-networking site on the Internet.

“But it hurt me to read her fear was being blown up,” he said. “But that's how kids are. They don't want you to know what's going on.”

On her Web site, she said she wanted to have children some day.

She said she had two more years before she expected to be done serving in the Army so she could return to Pennsylvania and go to college.

"I plan on majoring in business, but that's still pretty far off so I'll let ya know how that goes," she wrote on her Web site. "I have been in Iraq since Dec. 15 and am just around the halfway point."

"Seems like ages away. But hey, I signed the dotted line and I am going to finish what I started."

The 5-foot-5-inch woman with blue eyes said she wanted to go on a cruise when she returned from Iraq.

She said what she missed most was Pennsylvania.

David said he used to do everything with Jennifer.

She loved the outdoors.

"Everything we did, we did outside," he said. "She eventually wanted to sell four-wheelers, motorcycles. She loved her four-wheelers. She wanted to die on her four-wheeler, not over there."

IMPORTANT! DO NOT PRINT THIS PAGE!!!

Why? Because this list changes all the time due to unit movements, soldier transfers, or even soldier casualties.
It is also illegal. ALL content on this site is copyright Any Soldier Inc.
DO NOT send any letter or package to a soldier's address unless you check this web site the same day you mail your packages.
Please do not burden the soldiers or the APO/FPO by sending things when the soldiers are gone. If a soldier is not listed here anymore then that soldier's address is expired. Check here often!

Note that some of the units do not have ranks shown on their addresses.
This is done at the unit's request, but ALL of our contacts ARE Servicemembers.

Be sure to change the "ATTN" line to "ATTN: Any Female Soldier if your package is for a female!

DO NOT use this program if you expect or require a reply!
DO NOT expect, or require, a reply from a Soldier!
A supporter said it perfectly, "I mean, these guys and gals have other things on their minds, y’know? Like...oh, STAYING ALIVE?"


(NOTE *): Effective 1 May 2006 this web site added a major layer of security to our contacts' information. This change is necessary to protect our troops and ensure that Any Soldier will continue to operate.
The ONLY changes are that the addresses of our contacts are now hidden and the number of addresses you can get are limited. You may obtain addresses simply by clicking on the link provided and correctly filling out the form, the address will then be emailed to you immediately.

(NOTE **): The number shown is how many times a form was submitted requesting this address. This does NOT necessarily mean that this contact will be helped by that many folks. Rule of thumb is that anything 5 requests or less may in fact be no support at all. No way to tell exactly unless the contact lets you know in his/her update how much support they are getting.

(Note 1.): Note that postage to APO AE and FPO AE (E = Europe) is only to NY where the connection to the APO/FPO (APO = Army Post Office)(FPO = Fleet Post Office) is, or to San Francisco for APO AP and FPO AP (P = Pacific), so you don't pay postage all the way to Iraq/Afghanistan. You might consider picking contacts closer to your mailing area to help cut the cost of mailing. If you live on the East Coast, pick "AE", West Coast, pick "AP", Midwest, well...uh, Thank You for your Support! ;)

New with us (December 2005) you might notice "APO AA" and "FPO AA". This is for units in the Caribbean/South America. Normally. However, due to the nature of some units they may be in Iraq but have an address showing "FPO AA". Mail addresses to "AA" goes out of Miami, Florida.

(Note 2.): Why are military addresses weird? There isn't a street address or city. What gives? Correct, just about everything about the military is weird to civilians. Military units are very mobile, they move around a lot, often they even become part of another unit. The APO (Army Post Office) and FPO (Fleet Post Office) assign APO and FPO numbers as needed, they are NOT static. An APO/FPO number may be for a large unit, or a location. An APO/FPO number for Baghdad today may be for Frankfurt tomorrow.

(Note 3.): The "Expect to not mail past" date is only an approximate and is one of the least reliable things on this web site. It is because of this that you must check often before you send anything to this unit. There are a few reasons this date is not reliable, to include: it IS the Military, we ARE dealing with the APO/FPO/DPO. The only thing that does not change in the military is that things will change. PLEASE NOTE that a Contact is dropped off our active list 30 days PRIOR to their date leaving to help avoid mail bouncing.

(Note 4.): (Removed for OPSEC reasons)

(Note 5.): The lines, "Contact with approx number of Soldiers:" and "Approx how may Female Soldiers:" have NOTHING to do with unit strength. They are approximately how many other Troops the Contacts believe they can get packages to. This helps you understand that you should not send 100 packages to someone who only deals with 10 Troops.
Don't forget that if your package is for a female Soldier, be sure to change "ATTN: Any Soldier®" to "ATTN: Any Female Soldier".

( Note 6.): This is simply where the unit this contact is from. This is NOT a true picture of the folks in the unit as most all units are made up of folks from all over the United States.) A "Composite Unit" is one made up of other units and is usually temporary for a particular mission.

( Note 7.): Updated APO/FPO/DPO mailing restrictions> courtesy of Oconus.com (gone now) (Note: About Restriction "U2": "U2 - Limited to First Class Letters", Box "R" is for retired personnel that live overseas and are still authorized an APO/FPO box. Their address will be something like Box 3345R. Doubt you will see anything like that in Afghanistan or Iraq or ...)(Please Note: Sometime in August 2013, Oconus.com changed the code on their page and our form doesn't work with them anymore, so a link to their page is the best we can do, sorry.)
