A Military Family Awaits the Afghanistan Drawdown

The Takeaway
The World
The Afghanistan drawdown is scheduled to begin this month. But we still don't know which generals will be choosing which enlisted men and women to come home. Meanwhile, military families across the country wait. Marilyn Greaves is among them. Her 20-year-old son Daniel is three months into his one year tour of Afghanistan. She's also a member of Military Moms and Wives of Brazoria County, which assembles and ships care packages for the military. Darrin Greaves is Daniel's older brother and Marilyn's son. A marine and veteran of Iraq, he chose not to go on a tour of Afghanistan, in order to spare his mother the pain of having two sons off at war at the same time. Marilyn and Darrin join us from Houston, Texas.
