Jason Brown: Giving Pause

It was Sept. 20, 2003, and Jason Brown could tell immediately that his mom, Deborah, sounded off. But he wasn't sure if that meant she had good or bad news. Then he knew. "It's Deucey, isn't it?" "Yeah, baby," she said. "It's your brother." In the middle of the night in Iraq, a mortar shell had hit his battalion outside Abu Ghraib prison. Deucey, by chance, absorbed most of the shrapnel.
