As an Iraq war combat veteran, it breaks my heart to learn of the losses of the Iraqi people. I work for an international oilfield company which has given me the opportunity to work hand in hand with Iraqis in a post war environment which truly opened my eyes to the agony of seeing your own town city and country be devastated by war. I hope these Iraq and Afghanistan veterans put some sense into other members of congress. These people need help, but not by the sword. I pray that Iraq and it’s people overcome this adversity.
