According to Leeman's mother the hardest part she feels is, “It’s waiting that’s the hardest and not knowing,” said Dee-Dee Leesman, Wrangler’s mother, who lives outside Phoenix, Arizona. “I know if anybody can do it, he can do it, and he’ll probably come home laughing at me,” said Dee-Dee Leesman. “Because the last thing he said to me is, mom, don’t try to write me. Don’t try to call me, you know I’m coming home.”
Bradley Evans Josker was found by the Coast Guard by officials and mentioned to police that strong current winds and high waves hit them from both off the kayak, according to the statement. Both were holding onto the kayak when another hit them again they became separated.
Since then Leesman was not found. But, Leesman manage to sustain tours of duty in Afghanistan and Iraq, a helicopter crash and was at Fort Hood during the recent shootings on post.
