My son Nicholas was recently home on a brief leave from his deployment in Iraq and he stopped by his former grade school, Fields Memorial, in Bozrah, CT, to thank 8th grade students of his sister's class for their support in collecting items, which were sent to Nick's troop in Iraq for Christmas. Nick talked with the class and teachers, sharing some of his experiences in Iraq since he was deployed. He will not be home again until December 2008.
