We are a military family with 2 returning Iraq veterans; OIF, March 2003 - August 2004, He deployed to Iraq in his second stop-loss extended 15 month deployment; Dec 2007 - April 2008. Now he has standing orders for deployment to Afghanistan. I believe it is a sacrifice too large to ask of him, his wife and their three children.
