'I am very proud of him'
Here is a picture of my son, Sargeant Joe Simpson in Iraq. He is with the 318th Psychological Operations Company there. He's been in the Army Reserve since he was 18 and is a junior at the U.of Mo., Columbia Mo. He is also a resident advisor there. He is into his 7th month of his tour. He can't tell me where he is in Iraq because of his job there. I am VERY proud of him!!!
-- Joe Simpson Sr, of Saint Louis, Missouri
