“Heroic actions in Iraq”

Jimmie and I grew up together. While in the reserves, he got called up to Active Duty, not once but twice, spent a significant amount of time in Iraq and surrounding areas. At one point he was stationed at Abu Ghraib right after the scandal. He processed prisoners and saw a lot of bad stuff. He was there when the special forces brought in guys responsible for the Matt Maupin murder. He endured bombings, mortar attacks, and suicide bombers - and he didn't even have to be there. He was as courageous as any person could be in those crazy situations, he is my hero!!
