Cpt Patti's return home from Iraq got me thinking. A few months ago there seemed to be 24/7 coverage on television, newspapers, magazines, and blogs of the announcement and impact of the extension of many GI's tours in Iraq. Countless relatives were shown, upset and teary, having just received the news that their loved ones were not coming home next week after all.
Has there been similarly extensive coverage on the happy homecomings for these troops? How about interviews with them to see how they feel about what they've accomplished - and the cost of that accomplishment?
I may have missed the stories - TV hasn't been my top priority while on leave - but I suspect the images and voices of the returning heroes from Iraq have not been amplified by national media coverage.
Please correct me if I'm wrong.

I had those very thoughts myself driving around yesterday. But we all know it'll never make the mainstream. Thank goodness we have blogs to share the good news and celebrate. How very dark and grim live must be without them.Posted by Tammi at July 15, 2004 10:48 PM Hide Comments | Show/Add Comments in Popup Window(2) | (Note: You must refresh main page to view newly posted comments here)
