Kansas has a second connection to the Prisoners of War held in Iraq. Patrick Miller went to school in Valley Center. And Joe Hudson has relatives in Kansas.
Hudson's grandparents live in Lyons, one of his aunt's lives in Wichita. "He's a leader, he's the one who took care of his brother, he took care of his mother after his father died", Hudson's aunt Cindi Cook said.
Along with your prayers, Cook says the tough lessons in her nephew's life which will help him endure the most difficult one thus far. She also believes prayers, not anguish, will set him free.
