Jon Zimbelman of Whitefish, Montana has been working in Iraq as a private communications contractor for the U.S. Navy. (--Whitefish is 210 miles northwest of Helena. Jon and his wife's ages weren't given . . . but they look like they're in their 20s.)
--Jon planned to come home last week . . . because his wife Erin was about to give birth to twins. But he had a visa problem and couldn't make it back in time.
--So workers at the North Valley Hospital helped the new parents out. When Erin went into labor on Tuesday last week, a hospital worker sat on the stool next to her . . . and held an iPad where Jon was supposed to be.
--Back in Iraq, Jon was able to watch the birth of his twins on Skype, and Braylon and Brielle were born one minute apart.
--Erin and the babies are home and doing fine . . . and Jon expects to be home in time for Thanksgiving.
