TALLIL, Iraq - Command Sgt. Maj. Rue Mayweather and Capt. Kenieth Mayweather, a mother and son pair deployed to Iraq in support of Operation New Dawn share an embrace Oct. 7 on Camp Adder, Iraq, after Rue promoted Kenieth to the rank of captain. This is the first time the mother and son team have been deployed together, and they have managed to spend time together on several occasions despite the constant demands of a deployed environment. Rue works at a critical thinking cell of U.S. Forces-Iraq, and Kenieth is an Apache pilot assigned to the Enhanced Combat Aviation Brigade, 1st Infantry Division. (U.S. Army photo)
