“I don't know how many I sent home...”

Tech Sgt. MaCherie Dunbar (R) was deployed twice to Iraq in 2007-2008.

At StoryCorps, MaCherie told her girlfriend, Barb Maglaqui (L), about one of the hardest things she had to do while overseas.

MaCherie is an Air Force reservist and lives in Fairbanks, Alaska. She is hoping to retire from the Air Force this year because of PTSD.
