James Gallagher is a member of the First Battalion of the 133rd Infantry of the Iowa National Guard. In July, 2007 James returned to his hometown of Galena, Illinois, after serving an extended 16 month tour in Iraq. Today, Gallagher has four more years to serve in the Iowa National Guard, and it’s any one’s guess whether he will be deployed a second time. In the meantime, Gallagher is planning to get his EMT license so that he can become a fire fighter and keep serving his country.
