Military families battle emotions about Iraq
When Sgt. Guinn returned on leave, he spent most of his time with his family. Now that he’s deployed, his wife is mentally preparing for all the bumps in the road she knows she’ll face over the next year.
She knows Iraq is safer today than it was during her husband’s first two tours. Sgt. Guinn fought with the 3rd Infantry Division during the initial invasion in 2003, facing swarms of Iraqi fighters who charged American tanks. During his second tour, he patrolled violent streets of the Shi’ite slum Sadr City in the center of Baghdad.
Everybody’s saying this time shouldn’t be as bad, but still, she’s worried.
“I know how dangerous it is, but I’m going to try not to think about it. I have to stay positive. I have to stay strong,” she said.
