'We have 'adopted' him as our son'
Brent James is in the 213th Area Support Medical Company of the Arkansas National Guard. He is currently in Mobilization Training at Ft. McCoy in Wisconsin and will be deployed to Iraq in October. His group provides medical support and treatment to injured troops in Iraq... even Iraqis if need be.
We have known Brent for several years and have come to love him dearly. We have "adopted" him as our son. He is a fine, outstanding young man. I know he will do his very best to serve his country! Thank YOU so much for the job that YOU do, Robin!
