Saddam's Sons Confirmed Dead

By  | 

The military's confirmation that Saddam's sons were among the men killed in a firefight in Iraq has local military members talking about the morale boost the news may bring troops that are still abroad.

Capt. Jay Moorman, who spent about six weeks as a marine attack helicopter pilot in Iraq, says the news will likely make troops feel successful and good about their jobs.

However, Saddam Hussein is still at large, and Moorman says troops are focused on completing their mission and coming home. He says it's important to continue supporting the men and women who are still fighting abroad.
