G. I. Granny

A 72-year-old great-grandmother is preparing for deployment to the war zone in Iraq and will become one of the oldest Department of Defense civilian workers in the war zone.

“I volunteered,” said Lena Haddix of Lawton, Oklahoma who has five children, eight grandchildren and three great-grandchildren. “I wanted to do something for the country, because I was always left behind taking care of the children.”
