Colorado Military Families Wonder if They'll Feel the 'Surge'

January 11, 2007


After the President's speech last night, many Colorado military families are wondering if their loved ones will be part of the more than 20,000 additional troops soon to be sent to Iraq. Pamela Osburne is a Denver mom whose son, Danny, is a marine infantrymen scheduled for deployment to Iraq in July. That date has already been moved up once, and that has Osburne worried.

"His job is to be a scout for the explosive devices, and now with this surge, it is a very frightful thing."

Osburne says people should be aware of how little money is actually going to equipping the troops overseas, and she'd also like more support once they return home.

"We really need to get behind making sure that these soldiers are taken care of when they come back, because I know many that are suffering from post-traumatic stress disorder."

She says she opposes the war, but is proud of her son, who went to boot camp shortly after high school graduation last year.

President Bush announced that he would send 21,500 new troops to Iraq, despite calls for withdrawal from Democrats.
