A Soldier's Story

No story can completely capture what it's like to serve in Iraq. But Ken Fuson of the Des Moines Register takes us as close as non-combatants can go in "A Soldier's Promise." This beautifully written three-part story shares with us the courage, pain and loyalty of 1st Sgt. Brent Jurgersen, who promised the families of his soldiers that he would bring them home safely from Iraq. Notice how Fuson doesn't waste a word in his narrative.
