Mass. newlyweds hope to be together when they serve in Iraq
BOSTON -- A newlywed military couple from Rockland are relieved now that they expect to be able to serve together when they're sent to Iraq within weeks.
Amrmy Reservists Heather Maddy and Mac White married in May months after volunteering for a 400-day tour in Iraq. They volunteered together in part so they wouldn't have to deal with the pain of separate deployments.
While they're waiting for their final assignments, they're expecting to be able to serve together after writing about their case to Senator John Kerry and Congressman William Delahunt.
Maddy is a surgical technician from South Shore Hospital, and White is a correction officer at Bridgewater State Hospital. Maddy expects to work in Iraq as an operating room surgical technician.
