A soldier from Union City is spending the next two weeks resting at home after spending ten months in Iraq. U.S. Army Specialist Jason Niggle served his country 30 miles south of Baghdad, at a base in Balad. His family gave him hugs and tears as he entered the terminal at Erie International Airport Tuesday night. Jason says he held many jobs while at the Balad base, from tower guard to signal intelligence. While his mother says she became a news junkie while he was over there, they sent many e-mails to each other, and he was able to telephone home. Jason says Camp Anaconda in Balad resembled a small city. It was pretty safe compared to what is happening 50 miles northeast of the camp, in Baghdad. The roadside bombs still are a danger, but Jason says life within the camp was as close to normal as one can get in a war. Jason is also waiting for his step-brother to return home. Hes an army reserve doctor whos been stationed in Kuwait.
