War Diary: Lt. Spencer Abbot

Last night, Navy Lt. Spencer Abbot flew an F-18 Hornet over northern Iraq. His fighter squadron is based aboard the aircraft carrier USS Theodore Roosevelt, which is sailing in the eastern Mediterranean. With their missions lasting five or six hours, Abbot and his squadron have to refuel their jets in the air -- at night -- as they fly to and from their targets. This is his War Diary entry.
