Region 8 Marine War Decision

A Region 8 Marine is facing a hard choice torn over a decision on whether he should return to war.

Last month 21 year old Marine Brian Hopper, of Wynne, was killed in Iraq in a helicopter crash.

His older brother Patrick was also serving in Iraq at the time.

The military now gives surviving siblings of soldiers killed, a choice whether or not to return to war, unless there is a national draft in place.

The question now is... will Patrick go back?

Patrick says as it stands right now he is going back but his family and everyone else wants him to stay.

He says he has until August to make up his mind.
