Army Reserve Sgt. Erik Botta and his wife, Jennifer, embrace in the parking lot of a Marriott hotel in Palm Beach Gardens, Fla., on Friday, July 13, 2007. Botta, 26, of Port St. Lucie, Fla., has been sent to Iraq three times and to Afghanistan once. He thinks that's enough. Botta wants a court to block the military's plan to deploy him for a fifth time Sunday, most likely to Iraq. He isn't against the war; he simply thinks he's done his duty and it's time to spend time with family and pursue education.
