Our son, Lance Corporal Arild Doerge, returned from Iraq to his Reserve Station in Waco, Texas on Thursday, March 27, 2008.
YAYYYY! I'm so glad he's home safely. He's a little on the skinny side but otherwise looks great. He is a tank mechanic and was part of a Maintenance Unit in Haditha. Fortunately, he wasn't involved in any combat. He helped recover and repair broken equipment and helped with patrolling along the border with Saudi Arabia.
He has about a month of active duty in Waco then will return to reserves status and go back to work, school, and friends. We thank God for his safe return and good health.
Arild with proud Mom and Dad and little sister, Nadley.
