Iraq war tests resolve of a patriotic U.S. soldier (Reuters)

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Sergeant James Connolly volunteered for the U.S. army on the afternoon of September 11, 2001. He served a year in
Iraq and took part in the operation that killed
Saddam Hussein's sons in July 2003.

Now, facing a second lengthy deployment by the end of the year, Connolly wants out. He says he will do his duty to the best of his ability, but he feels he has fulfilled his commitment to the military and the nation and he does not believe the Iraq operation is worth dying for.

"I feel terrible. I'd like to get out. I'm done with the army. I want to move on. My commitment was up last December but they extended the whole division until January 31, 2007," Connolly said in a telephone interview.
