Maupin Family Watches Turmoil in Iraq Closely
MIAMI VALLEY -- The turmoil in Iraq is on a lot of people's minds, and the families of those who made the ultimate sacrifice while fighting in the War Iraq, are no exception.
Keith Maupin's son, Army Staff Sgt. Matt Maupin, was the first American soldier missing in action in the War in Iraq.
He's been keeping an eye on the latest news from the country.
"We get it like this, we get it like this right here," said Keith as he showed us around the Yellow Ribbon Support Center.
He started the center in honor of his son Matt, nearly 10 years ago.
"It helps me a lot knowing that he's not forgotten," said Keith.
Army Staff Sgt. Matt Maupin went missing in 2004, after an ambush by Iraqi insurgents in Baghdad.
He was missing in action for four years, until Americans got a tip telling them where Matt's body could be found in Iraq.
And just last month, Keith flew to DC to speak to a judge in Iraq, because a prisoner there, confessed to killing his son.
But now, with the unrest, and the threat of Islamic militants taking over Baghdad, Keith is concerned about justice for Matt.
"I really was hoping that this guy would be brought to trial and then you know that'd be some sort of justice in place, but it don't look like that's gonna happen," said Keith.
Friday, the president announced he won't be sending more troops to Iraq, but keith believes, we never should have left.
"I think it was a mistake to pull them out in the first place, because they weren't ready," he said.
But even with the recent turmoil, Keith still believes his son made a difference.
"I don't think Matt died for nothing, I really don't, because look, this all come from that, so for Matt, I don't think that he died in vain," said Keith.
