My son returned from Iraq last week, shaken and saddened by what he saw. I thank God he returned home to our family in one physical piece. However, looming over our heads is the "back door draft," a policy that has been forced upon our military and their families without their consent. Our troops return home to a heroes welcome, only to receive redeployment papers sometime in the near future disrupting their settled lives.
