Just in time for the big event
Just in time for the big event: Spc. Jason Walker nuzzles his 3-week-old son, Christopher, in Fort Wainwright, Alaska. Returning from a year deployment in Iraq three weeks ago, Walker arrived his wife's bedside at Bassett Army Community Hospital seven minutes before Christopher was born.

Stryker soldier returns to Fairbanks in time for son's birth

Jason was located shortly after his bus from Eielson Air Force Base arrived on post.

They grabbed my bags, threw me on a truck and whisked me to the hospital, Jason said.

I went from one extreme to another like any other combat mission, he added with a twinkle in his eye. I just went to the corner (of the delivery room) and pulled security.

I smiled and waved and stood in the corner.

By then Rachael was too busy to take much notice of, or greet her husband.

He walked in and I screamed, Ive got to push, she said.

Seven minutes later, Christopher Camden Ray, weighing 6 pounds, 14 oz., was born. He is the couples third child.
