Josh Hansen sat across the kitchen table from his 6-year-old son. His blue eyes shifted from his wife preparing dinner to the boy coloring a page with a red marker. He smiled and then chuckled.
Hansen doesn’t have to worry about improvised explosive devices, suicide bombers or small-arms ambushes anymore. He’s as far away from the dangers of war as he could possibly be inside his home in Woods Cross.
The 41-year-old is happy with his current, peaceful life. With the exception of a memorial tattoo of a helmet, rifle and boots on his left arm, there is little to indicate a soldiering past.
