scottb@herald-mail.com When Travis Morgan - who is just back from serving with the U.S. Air Force in Kuwait - was greeted on his return home by his 15-month-old son, DeLyn, the toddler not only recognized his father but gave him a hug and a kiss, Morgan said Saturday. "He wasn't the huggy type before," Morgan, 24, said. DeLyn could not even walk when Morgan was sent in March to Kuwait, where he did plumbing and other work for the Air Force's 332nd Air Expeditionary Group.

According to Shari Hastings, her son is recuperating in Kuwait from a bomb attack in Iraq. U.S. Army Spec. Dustin T. Hastings, 21, has had trouble sleeping and eating since he was injured by shrapnel Sept. 2, she said. "He's got a lot of sleeplessness. He said he'll stay up three days straight before he'll get to sleep, until he's completely exhausted," she said Tuesday.

MARTINSBURG, W.Va. - Edna Brumbaugh and Gertrude Kime walked solemnly as they carried wreaths to the marker honoring area war dead at War Memorial Park Monday morning. Brumbaugh's son, John Brumbaugh Jr., died in 1969 in Vietnam. Kime's son, Joseph Kime III, died in Kuwait City at the end of the Persian Gulf War in 1991. To them, Memorial Day is more than an excuse for family reunions, picnics and softball games. It is a day to remember their sons' sacrifices. About 150 people gathered at War Memorial Park Monday morning to pay tribute to those killed in combat.

julieg@herald-mail.com Joe Kime Jr. already has lost a son to a U.S. war with Iraq. He doesn't want to lose his grandchildren to a second war with the Persian Gulf nation. None of his two grandsons and three granddaughters are in the military, but Kime fears that increasing U.S. casualties in the war with Iraq could lead to the draft being reactivated. His grandchildren in Martinsburg and Hedgesville, W.Va., and in North Carolina are at or approaching draft age. "I'm not antiwar or anything else," said the Korean War veteran and Jefferson County resident.
