Nearly 7,000 American troops have died fighting in wars in Iraq and Afghanistan just in the last 12 months.
Nobody knows that loss more than the loved ones of the soldiers that have lost their lives.
This includes Bill Krissoff who lost his son, First Lieut. Nathan Krissoff of Reno, Nevada.
Bill needed to find a way to honor his son. So, being an orthopedic surgeon, he made a decision that surprised Everyone – he enlisted in the Navy Medical Corp in the hope of being assigned to Iraq.

But Bill never gave up.
One day, Bill and his wife were invited to meet President Bush and fate struck.
