Eileen Padberg’s story of her brave service in Iraq is a compelling American story; a story of one person’s efforts to do good amidst the hell of war. The stained image of America will take a long time to redeem, but I believe the contributions made by Eileen to rebuild Iraq will play a significant role in the story of that redemption.
