A story from Iraq yesterday about how reservists are shouldering a heavy burden in Iraq includes an interview with a local soldier.
Sergeant Mark Sabourin, a carpenter from Bellingham, told The Associated Press that being away for months was a stress on the family, but he agreed to deploy for a second time to "take care of my Marines."
"I wouldn't feel right sitting at home watching these guys on TV, doing what they need to do. That's not why I joined the Marine Corps," Sabourin said.
