Couple had five children in the Army in Iraq.
Ron and Mary Harper perhaps feared the war in Iraq the most. Five of their children, all in the Army, went to the embattled country, and they worried each day about them all.

Now, all five — a daughter, three sons and a son-in-law — are safely home.

"How many people can say they sent five children out to war and got them all back?" Mary Harper said Friday. "You send five over there. You hear of all these killings every day, and you wonder, Are they going to come home alive? We're thrilled they're all back. We're blessed."
