Iraq Diary, Pt 4: Soldier?s Family Waits Nervously

Listen to this story
Hundreds of National Guard and Reserve soldiers from New York state are serving now in Iraq. Over the past month, Army chaplain Eric Olsen has been sharing his experiences from the front line inside the Sunni Triangle. This morning, we'll hear a very different point of view, with an audio diary recorded by Major Olsen's wife - Susan. Susan Olsen lives in Saranac Lake with her sons Garth and Evan.

Next Monday, the series continues with a look at a soldier's daily life north of Bagdad.
