Nightmares And Darkness Follow Marine Home From Iraq War
Marine Cpl. Jeff Lucey deployed to Iraq, where he was a convoy driver, in 2003. His parents, Joyce and Kevin Lucey, drove him to the deployment point in the early hours of the morning.
It was dark, but eerily lit up with headlights all the cars dropping off Marines, Kevin recalls with his wife in a StoryCorps interview in Wellesley, Mass.
"I just remember him walking away into the darkness, and the darkness engulfing him," Kevin continues.
