My strong, blue-eyed son was being sent to Iraq. I knew it was going to happen, but I was surprised how quickly he was deployed. He graduated from John Carroll University in January 2003, completed Army officer training in June and was now being sent to war in August of the same year. He was going from his base in Germany, so we did not get to send him off.
