North Carolinian seeks a kind of peace in return to war

Sgt. 1st Class Chad Stephens is returning to Iraq after four years of a hard civilian life, where nightmares plagued him, jolting him awake in the bedroom of his home in rural Ahoskie, N.C. He retreated to a converted barn behind his home. He didn't go into stores or crowds or even downtown Ahoskie. For him, a return to military life offers a hope of relief from his jumpiness. In the military life, he told his psychiatrists, I'm good.
