It's something soldiers in all other American wars could only dream of--reading stories to their children from thousands of miles away. In Iraq, however, that dream is now a reality for Major Jeffrey May.
"It makes me feel like he's closer to me, and it makes me feel good," May's son James says after he and his brother and sisters read along to the children's book "Corduroy" with his dad.
It's a new military initiative called United Through Reading. Service men and women to record themselves reading to their kids and send the DVD in the mail. The program is designed to help boost the morale of service members and their children during deployment.
Lynn May says it's a blessing.
