Returns Home From Kuwait
Army Spec. Robert S. Shaw IV, son of Patricia Shaw-Bilbo of Arverne, has returned to the U.S. after a deployment to Kuwait in support of Operation Iraqi Freedom.
Operation Iraqi Freedom is the official name given to military operations involving U.S. and coalition forces efforts to disarm and end the current Iraqi regime. The focus of the mission involving U.S. active and reserve component military forces is to liberate the Iraqi people, preserve Iraq as a unified state, keep its territorial integrity intact, and help the Iraqi people begin the process of economic and political reconstruction.
The specialist is a transportation management coordinator who has served in the military for two years. Shaw graduated from Beach Channel High School in 2001.
