My father patrick kite is a retired E-7 SFC in the Army. he was already in the army when i was born. On august 23, 2007 my father patrick kite went and faught in the iraq war. My father loves his country that is why he wanted to serve in this war. When he got to iraq he was staying in saddam hussein palace. It was a relgular checkpoint when my fathers hummer ran over a land mine. the hummer went up to flames on the spot and two american soldiers were hurt he saved there life's by fighting off a group of taliban soldiers and waiting for other soldiers to come in a resure them. when he got back to the states the army put him in a hospital in houston texas to make sure he was okay and not badly injured. there he got his purple heart for courage in saving the two other solidiers lifes. He now lives in milton florida with my sister and mother. he is a big veteran in my life and a hero to me.
