Burks wanted a challenge when he joined the Marines, but he never thought he'd be faced with the challenge of feeding thousands of starving Iraqis.

"There was days when we wouldn't even eat, and we would just give all our food up. It's something that I would never want to experience again. But we felt that was what we needed to do," said Burks...

While Burks is thankful to be back on leave, he's glad the Pentagon is thinking about sending in more troops.

"I wish I could go back over there right now. And it's hard for me to say that.

But with what's going on over there, I don't see how I can sit here and already come back when my brothers are still over there dying every day," said Burks.
