My son Palani is one of 600 Hawai’i-based reservists who were called up and preparing for duty in Iraq.

We talked extensively about the possibility of this happening before he enlisted, so we have no complaints, but it doesn’t make it any less stressful. The house is quieter, and its a different quiet than there was when he was off at basic training. God willing we’ll see him again in 18 months.
