2002 He dreamed of becoming a pilot and wanted to start a military career as an officer but a slip in his senioryear grades pre vented that his mother said He comes from military stock on both sides of his fam ily thirdgeneration Army on his fathers side and the grandson and nephew of Navy men on his mothers side His younger sister Sonjia joined the Army reserves and was planning to head to Iraq herself last year But her par ents put a halt to those plans so they wouldnt have both chil dren in harms way In Iraq Christopher has been on the his mother said one of the many sol diers on regular patrols Now Lujans family is one of the many military families waiting and watching amid vows by rebels to disrupt balloting in next weekends election in Iraq and Iraqi officials fear more attacks in the runup to Sundays election and plan massive security measures Iraqis will choose a 275seat National Assembly and provin cial councils in Iraqs 18 prov inces in the first nationwide balloting since the ouster of Saddam Hussein in 2003 Mosul is among the areas where troops have stepped up security operations round ing up hundreds of suspected insurgents On Saturday a soldier was killed on a security patrol there Its the kind of news that makes the wait until next month all that more difficult for Lujans family But Lujans father says the role of his son and his com rades in Iraq is
