Cain described the dramat-
ic change in lifestyle he expe-
rienced after ending his days
as an undergraduate.
"There is much more
expected of a young adult over
here," he said. "At home I was
worried about studying and
writing papers, while here,
I am concerned with keep-
ing other Marines and myself
Cain said it's not just the
workload that's different. He
misses the carefree nights.
"I hear about friends party-
ing at Rick's and Scorekeep-
ers and wish I could partake
in those activities," Cain
said. "You learn to appreci-
ate everything that you had at
Cain hopes to return home
in the spring and find a job,
but he plans to remain in the
"In the military, you will
learn that it does not matter
where you come from or who
you are," he said. "We are
all equals, brothers in arms,
fighting to keep our country
and way of life safe."
Another former Univer-
sity student, Staff Sgt. Nicolas
DeLong, said he partied too
much his first semester of col-
lege. He was bored with life as
an undergraduate and wanted
more of a challenge. So after
dropping out of college after
his first semester in 2003, he
signed up with the Army. Soon
after, he was sent to Iraq for
an eight-month tour of duty
when he was 20 years old.
Now based in South Korea,
DeLong is awaiting redeploy-
ment to Iraq later this year.
When he was in Iraq,
DeLong spent much of his
time on daily missions, usually
"The raids involved going
to locations and searching for
any weapons or anything that
may have had military intel-
ligence value," he said in an
e-mail interview from Iraq.
"You met with locals that
lived in the area and reported
anything suspicious that was
DeLong has mixed feelings
of his time in Iraq.
"There are missions we did
there that I was very proud
of," he said. "But on the same
token, there were things I
saw there that disgusted me.
There are times that I felt the
media was very biased, but
I also felt that they are sadly
showing some of the truths of
DeLong seemed pessimistic
about President Bush's propos-
al to send an additional 21,500
American troops to Iraq.
"I believe it will help, pro-
viding they are used correct-
ly and efficiently, which sad
to say is not likely," he said.
"They will only be adding
maybe 6,000 to 7,000 troops
in a single rotation. Spread
that number across all of the
regions, and you're down to a
couple hundred per area."
Mark McDonald was cover-
ing Southeast Asia asa foreign
correspondent for the San
Jose Mercury News when ter-
rorists struck the U.S. on Sept.
Only a few weeks later, he
was sneaking over the Tur-
key-Iraq border on a bus.
He then spent three months
in Iraq's predominantlyKurd-
"There was a gaggle of cor-
respondents in the northern
region, and we used transla-
tors to communicate with the
local people to capture the
mood of the region," he said.
McDonald spoke freely
of the weeks he spent in a
run-down hotel, the day the
American forces blew the
doors off of Saddam's main
palace and the time he was
"I made friends with the
local militia, who was the
public security in the north,"
he said. "I often traveled with
them. One day, they were try-
There was a small river and a
steel bridge over it, leading to
the village. One of the guys I
was with was very noncha-
lantly waving a Kurdish flag,
and a sniper saw it. Bullets
ricocheted off the steel and
most of the guys dove into the
water, but I hit the cement
McDonald is considering
returning to Iraq when his
stint at the University ends in
"I was there at the begin-
ning of this great misadven-
ture, and I want to be there at
the end," he said.

cess of education in Michigan
hinges on these plans.
"I think she's right on,"
Kearney said. "A lot of good
research shows that a solid pri-
mary education shapes the aca-
demic future of each child."
Granhoim also pressed
for the removal of barriers to
embryonic stem cell research,
which have frustrated some
University scientists and
forced them to solicit private
funds to conduct experiments

Tignanelli said he thought
the man was browsing the
floor looking for more to steal
when he and his housemates
"I never thought anyone
would comeinto ahouse where
they knew forty guys lived, try
to steal things and then have
the audacity to come back for
more," he said.
The man matched suspect
descriptions for other recent
home invasions in the area,
AAPD crime analyst Char-

The man had snuck into the

speech, Granholm named
numerous instances last year

legislation. She encouraged
the legislature to continue to
