It’s no secret that many across the country are not happy with the President’s new plan for the course in Iraq.

But, even after the loss of his oldest son, Brad, Bob Arm’s says he knows the world will gain much more from the one loss he took.

“I know hospitals have been built, schools have been built, women are getting educated that were completely suppressed, a people are free,” said Arms.

Arm’s says that freedom, the gift out country was built on, is a gift all others in the world should be given as well.

“There are bombs that are going off here and there. There are people that are losing their lives here and there. But the country as a whole, there are huge, vast areas of it that are living in peace that hadn’t before,” said Arms.

He also says that he understands that the President has long-term visions for the next generation of Iraqi’s; a vision that his son Brad told him he saw in the eyes of children everyday,

“But when it comes to turning a nation it doesn't happen overnight. I just trust those that are in office that they are making the best decision that they can for the welfare of the world, as well as our nation and I commend them for their hearts,” said Arms.
