Father and son hold reunion in Baghdad
by UPI

BAGHDAD - A U.S. father and son who hadn't seen each other in 12 years were reunited in Baghdad recently to celebrate an important birthday.

The Army arranged a meeting between Master Sgt. William McGraw and his son, Pfc. Logan McGraw, after learning the two had lost touch due to a divorce, the Los Angeles Times reports.

William McGraw says the last time he saw Logan his son was 8-years-old.

"For whatever reason, it's unknown to me, his mother decided to go on with her life and move away from me with my son," McGraw, 45, told the newspaper.

McGraw's former wife also is in the Army.

Growing up, Logan McGraw spent time in Alaska and graduated from high school in Wurzburg, Germany. Carrying on the family tradition, he enlisted in the military and began searching for his father on the Internet.

The result was a reunion with his father in Baghdad just in time to celebrate Logan's 21st birthday and the elder McGraw's redeployment to Atlanta.
