'He decided to make the Army his career'
My husband Specialist William Craig is serving his 2nd tour in Iraq. His first tour was in 2005 as a Reservist, but after serving overseas he decided to make the Army his career and reenlisted in 2006 as an active duty soldier. He's with the 3rd ID out of Hunter Army Airfield and is now at Fort Striker near Baghdad. He deployed on May 7 of this year, just 3 months after our daughter Addison was born. We miss him very much.
