ZAHN: And, Leon, at the time that your wife is making that call, of course, you have Cindy Sheehan, whose son was killed in Iraq, trying to convince the president to pull the troops out immediately. There's got to be a part of you, in spite of your service in Iraq, that has to have some -- some doubts, though, about what American military personnel face in Iraq today.
CAPT. LEON PRUETT, FATHER OF FOUR SONS SERVING IN IRAQ: You know, Paula, I guess Cindy and the other folks that have lost loved ones over there, you know, we grieve with them and we're sorry for their losses and empathize with them and their families and what they're going through.
We don't have anything against anybody that wants to protest or do anything like that. That's wonderful. Isn't it right -- isn't it wonderful that we have that right in this country to be able to do that?
ZAHN: Tammy, do you think Cindy is dishonoring the service of those that are currently in Iraq fighting?
T. PRUETT: You know, that's a really tricky question.
Personally, as a mother, I feel her pain. Obviously, I can't feel it to the extent that she does. But I totally empathize with her feelings. It wouldn't be the way that I would choose to honor one of my sons if it happened to our family.
