Story in today's paper. Two young men from my old National Guard were wounded in Iraq from mortar fire. They've only been in country for a short time as they were mobilized right after Christmas.
One of them is a kid whose older brother was in when I was (he's still in and is also over there). Their mother is my age and was in high school with me.

Our guard unit just got to Kuwait last week, supposed to move into Iraq soon. I hope they all return, we go to church with some of them. It has not been too long ago they came back from Bosnia.
Sorry to hear about those from your neck of the woods. I guess every place has someone there now.

Another story in today's paper told of a young man, a Reservist, who just came home from 13 months in Iraq and was killed in a car accident.
