Memories of Homecoming are fading fast, yet one teacher at Carson High School will be thinking, "There's No Place Like Home" as he prepares to deploy for Iraq.
Mr. Mike Malley, a member of the Fine Arts department at CHS, has been called up along with several other members of his Navy Reserve unit to serve in the War on Terror.
Malley served in the Navy as a boat pilot and worked as shore patrol, a security force, during active duty. He will be stationed in Mississippi for weapons training until December before shipping to northern Iraq.
Friday is Malley's last day at CHS. Staff and students are asked to wear red, white, and blue on Wednesday, to celebrate his last week.
