Soldier prepares for 7th tour

Staff Sgt. Gary Hartman will leave for Afghanistan in December - on his seventh tour of duty. He said he'll certainly miss his family during the upcoming holiday season, but focusing at the task at hand is key. "Obviously it stinks a little bit, that you know it's the holiday time, you're gonna be away from family, but I enjoy serving and if I didn't enjoy serving, I wouldn't be doing what I'm doing."
