Local Soldier Returns Home

Twenty one year old Specialist Jennifer Adcock just returned home after spending a little over a year overseas. As an ammunition specialist in Iraq she earned numerous metals and was fortunate enough not to lose one member of her company. She worked closely with the Iraqi’s every day, and added that they are not the boogie men that so many people here at home believe. Specialist Adcock says that in the United States all we see is video of infantry units fighting, when in reality there is much more going on. From her position she had in-fact seen quite a decrease in fighting in the months before she left. Specialist Adcock says that though she doesn't miss it, it’s actually harder to sleep here at home because she is used to the constant background noise and helicopters flying overhead.
