American Soldiers and Skype
28 members of the 20th Combat Aviation Brigade of the Missouri National Guard are leaving for a mission in Iraq soon.
Amongst them is Javier Acosta. He and his wife Shelly have seven children, and a 5-month-old granddaughter.
"I'm proud of him," Mrs. Acosta of her husband. She has "trepidations of what they're facing. ... But I know they'll do a good job, and they'll come home."
Her husband is concerned his granddaughter won't know him when he returns, Mrs. Acosta said.
