U.S. Army Capt. Mark Fisher, left, leans down to kiss his daughter Madeline, 2, as he sits to have lunch with her and another daughter after arriving at nearby Joint Base Lewis-McChord the evening before Thursday, Aug. 19, 2010, in DuPont, Wash. Fisher had just returned from a nearly one-year tour in Iraq, his second there. Seven years and five months after the U.S.-led invasion, the last American combat brigade was leaving Iraq, well ahead of President Barack Obama's Aug. 31 deadline for ending U.S. combat operations there.
