    Mark, my son spends his life over there. He is actually in Iraq now. He is a contracter, and been doing this for over ten years. It is hard being a dad, knowing that your son is always in harms way. Some here will know what a contracter is. God bless you son and all the others protecting this great country... from what I'm not sure. Mike

    My soon-to-be LtCol son is in Kabul as we speak. He was in Kandahar in 02 as a company commander with the 82nd Airborne( 2 tours in Iraq in between). Its hard to send them and great when they come back. You have every right to be proud of your son. God Speed on his tour.
