MO Lawmaker Deployed to Iraq
House member Jason Brown of Platte City will work with Iraqi and foreign groups to help with the country's infrastructure development. He joined the Army Reserves in 1989 and is now a staff sergeant. He was deployed in 2000 to Bosnia-Herzegovina. Brown says he's not worried but has a lot of things going through his mind. Because he's already been in a combat zone, he says he knows what's coming. Fellow House member Jim Avery returned from Iraq last year and has been giving Brown tips for running his office from a war zone. Brown says he still plans to run for re-election in November.
