Frazier returns from Iraq

Brent Finnegan -- September 24th, 2006

The Roanoke Times ran a short story on Robert Frazier, re-adjusting to life in the Valley after returning from the war in Iraq (again?). He’s playing football, practicing with the VMI Keydets. He says it helps him to temporarily forget his experience in Iraq: “It sucks,” Frazier said. “Picking up body parts is not fun.” Frazier also criticizes VMI’s treatment of returning soldiers, even though he still plans to join the Marines in May.

And if you don’t know who the Frazier family is… well, you obviously haven’t been living in H’burg for very long.

It would be interesting to know how many people from H’burg & Rockingham County are currently serving in Iraq. Anyone know where to find that sort of info?
