From his web site: Boccieri, on the current wars -- Bring our troops home safely, honorably and soon: As a proud member of the Armed Forces who has served in Operation Iraqi Freedom and Operation Enduring Freedom, I understand what our troops face in defense of our country and the freedoms we love. I will continue to fight for our troops in battle, even as they are fighting for us now. We must continue our efforts to bring stability to regions where none existed, to support the establishment of democracy where the people cry out for it and, most importantly, to bring our brave men and women home safely, honorably and soon.
