Lt. Kenneth Tenebro enlisted in the armed forces after the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks, signing up even before he became an American citizen.

He served one tour of duty in Iraq, dodging roadside bombs, and he would like to do another. But throughout that first mission, he harbored a fear he did not share with anyone in the military. Lieutenant Tenebro worried that his wife, Wilma, back home in New York with their infant daughter, would be deported.

Tenebro should have thought about the ramifications of his actions prior to dallying with Wilma. Fool.

No big deal: court martial anyone who won't follow orders and then deport their wives. Problem solved.
