Our Military in Iraq

Manpower is more and more becoming an issue. Stories like this need to get more publicity. Calling up a 67 year old?

Charles Ham, a 67-year-old Lexington psychiatrist and grandfather, is headed back to his man-in-uniform days.

A retired Army Reserve colonel, Ham said last week he will report in February to Fort Benning, Ga. There, he will spend two to three weeks taking refresher training before he is deployed.

“They won’t tell me where I’ll be deployed,” he said. “They just told me I will be deployed.”
