SGT Wayne West

Online Family Discussion Boards are full of excitement about husbands and sons coming home on leave. Wayne chose to come home later in the rotation to have less time to serve when he returns to Iraq until his tour of duty ends in January 2006.

His leave begins August 11.

Can't wait to see that smile in person again!
