Fortunately, my son is stateside now. He has been to Afghanistan twice and was in Iraq at the beginning of the war. Don't know when he will have to go back but I'm not looking forward to it...too stressful
You dang right my son was on the way to Turkey at the start of the war. If you remember Turkey turned our boys away. I wasn't terribly upset. My son is an E-4 USAF firefighter and EMT. What branch is your son.
He's planning on going to work for Houston, they have already approached him on appling when he gets out in Sept 05. He is a level 7 firefighter whatever that is. All I know is that is that he is an EMT and crew chief with all of his hazmat qualifications.
My son is with the 39th Brigade Combat Team, 1st Cavalry division, in Baghdad.Was supposed to be coming home on R&R at the end of this month but he thinks their leave has been cancelled. I read on the net where Iran is massing troops along the border with Iraq, I don't know what is going on, but it doesn't souond good. This is probably the reason they are reducing the troops in Korea by 1/3 and pulling the two divisions out of Germany and sending to Iraq.
