What it Takes

When Captain Melton learned he would be going to Afghanistan, his family was far more concerned for his safety than he was.

“Do you want me to get you out of there?” his mother recalled offering. “I’ll do anything I can, even calling the commandant if I have to.”

Yesterday, she recalled her son’s response: “He said, ‘Don’t you dare. And if anything happens to me, don’t you dare blame President Bush. Don’t you blame the military. This is my decision. I feel God has led me to stay.’”
