U.S. Army Soldier Feels Better Having Daddy Along on Tour in Afghanistan

So much for "Army of One" propaganda, now soldiers feeling scared going to illegal war can take mommy and daddy along for protection:  this sick agit-prop "story" a prime example of destroyed "4th Estate" in America

OTTUMWA, Iowa (AP) —

Soldiers will tell you that one of the hardest parts of military service is leaving family behind. This year, an Ottumwa man got to bring his dad along to Afghanistan.
Just think Americans, no more sad goodbyes - with ObamaWars Inc. the whole family can go just like in Medieval wars; the perfect camp followers..... just one, big happy family camping trip to Afghanistan and remember the family that goes together gets blown-up together - no need for those pesky single graves nowadays that cost Obama a lot of money for cheap metal caskets, they can all be buried together now - in a regulation coffee can, and the flag is free

Senior Airman Cory LaRue, 22, of Ottumwa, shipped out with the 132nd Fighter Wing of the Iowa Air National Guard. It was his first combat deployment.

"They got back late Saturday night — actually, by then it was very early Sunday," his stepmom, Deana LaRue, said earlier in the week.
Even Rover can go - as bomb-sniffing dog
Her husband, Master Sgt. Rich LaRue, is Cory's father. They both got back to Ottumwa at the same time.

"We worked on the same shift in the same department," said the sergeant, who was the senior enlisted man on that shift. "I was the nighttime production supervisor. His supervisor worked for me."

So was it weird for a lower ranking enlisted man to have his father working on the base in Kandahar Province?

"No," said Cory, "it was weird if he wasn't around. We had a different night off, and I'd gotten used to seeing him every day. I had a lot of friends over there, but it was still nice having him there."

The two men and their squadron mates would spend around 14 hours straight building 500- and 2,000-pound laser-guided or GPS-guided bombs in the munitions area.

Other veterans might wonder what a young airman calls a senior non-commissioned officer in the middle of an active combat zone.

"I called him 'Dad' most of the time," Cory said.
And no more of these sad scenes for media to exploit, now everybody dies at same time, think of the tax advantages Americans, the saved expense of flying bodies home individually and burying them - now they just go up in a puff of smoke in Iraq Afghanistan and viola!  Problem solved, the family that camps together dies together

"Several times he called me Dad in front of a group," said Rich, "so I had to tell him: When there were a lot of (people) around, it'd be better if he just called me Sergeant LaRue."

Cory said that worked out fine, and that he and his father weren't the only troops having a father-son battle experience.
Think of the savings, American taxpayers:  And besides, military funerals aren't that much fun anyways

"The others were all from Des Moines," he said, mentioning four father-and-son teams in his fighter wing. "A lot of people thought it was nice, a father and son deploying together."

But being there didn't keep a father from worrying about his son.
And upsetting scenes like this will soon be a thing of the past - with ObamaWars Inc. mom won't be seen crying over casket or burial urn, she will be in it

"We had quite a few rocket attacks while we were there," said the sergeant. "There were times we'd have to stand guard duty at the back gate, so I'd worry about him."

A sentry would be assigned to spend the night at the edge of American-held territory — alone. The duty roster was assigned by Master Sgt. LaRue, and he put his son in the rotation with all the other young airmen.
And as an added bonus Americans, no more of these unpleasant, inconvienient reminders of the truth

Cory said this was supposed to have been a two-month deployment, but with stops in other countries and their stay running 10 days over, it was closer to a three-month deployment, with most of that time spent in Afghanistan.

If his country asked him to, said Senior Airman LaRue, he'd certainly consider deploying again. But the rare situation he found himself in on his first deployment may turn out to have been a once-in-a-lifetime experience.
The flag, is FREE.......
"I'm getting to the age," said Master Sgt. LaRue, "where I'm thinking about this being my last deployment."

After more than 20 years in the military, Rich has been to numerous combat zones in Europe and the Middle East.

"He's heard all the stories," the dad said, "and with this, his first deployment ... now he got to be on the other side of that."

"It made me feel real good that I was over there and actually doing something," Cory said.

"It was good for me because I had somebody here," said Rich. "We'd walk down to the Green Bean Coffee Shop and talk about the day before, about home, then go in and work our 14-hour shift."

Cory said that was an important connection.

"That was our thing we did; every morning we went and had coffee and talked. (We'd discuss) things we were going to do when we got back home. Making plans, like to go fishing."
All the money saved on American-style military funerals may now be used by Obama's Secret Service for more whores, booze, drugs

His dad told the Courier they talked about the odd weather in Ottumwa, which many days meant it was colder for troops in Afghanistan than it was back home in Iowa. When they got home, his son said, he wanted to go from part time to full time at work.
Americans can even learn and benefit from observing Afghan family burials of dead children killed by U.S. bombs and Predator drones - remember them?

Cory acknowledged it was somewhat strange to talk about such everyday topics in the middle of an Afghanistan war zone.

There they were, fighting a war in the Middle East, building munitions for U.S. aircraft and stationed on a military base that was under constant threat of rocket attack — talking about a Menards in Ottumwa, Iowa.

There were tough moments overseas, but being with family made a big difference.

"I wasn't as homesick," said Cory. "I had a little bit of home with me."
