McCain's Marine son returns from Iraq

WASHINGTON (CNN) - Republican presidential candidate John McCain, who almost always refuses to speak on the campaign trail about his son serving in the military, got a rousing reception Wednesday when he told a private gathering of House Republican congressman that his son Jimmy - whose Marine unit had been deployed to Iraq - had arrived home from safely.

    There is a grammatical error in your article.

    "had arrived home from safely."

    7 months seems like a cake walk compared to the multiple times my friends have been over there... I know a guy who got sent over there 3 diferent times.. then he lost it and beat an Iraqi civilian to death with his helemt and got a dishonerable discharge. He says it's not safe there at all. I wonder if him and Jimmy McCain were fighting the same war.

    We need our boys out of there. God bless our troops.
    If it is so safe that they are handing out soccer balls lets bring them all home now! We don't need a 100 year war.
