Mother's Day 2006 and the Veterans of Iraq War
A Day to Celebrate Women * Veterans tell their Stories
Mother's Day is not only for mothers. It is for all women---to be celebrated, to be praised, to be remembered.
- How can you describe what that was like? Who would understand it?
- Nobody. So Reuter keeps his mouth shut. His army uniform is packed in a box in the garage. He hasn't looked at it in months. Instead, he kisses his baby boy every night. He gets on with his life, because that's what everyone else is doing.
- At home in Newnan, Ga., there is no war.
- "It doesn't cross their minds," Reuter said. "To them, everything is fine."
