I was deployed to Iraq with my National Guard Infantry unit and during my time there I saw many things, some good and some bad. One item that stood out then and still does today is the needs of the children there. They are not all that different from my kids or any other child here in America, they are just stuck in the middle of something they can’t control.
I took many pictures while I was there and made a few videos as well, this one is a slide show of some of the children in our area of operations. They don’t have a choice but still pay the consequences, which is sad. It is with these children that our hopes for a peaceful and safe Iraq lay.
