NPR's Robert Siegel talks with Stephen Heering, a Texas truck driver who'd been driving in Iraq for a subsidiary of Halliburton. Though his first few weeks there were relatively uneventful, last week his truck was destroyed and he narrowly escaped with his life when a convoy he was in was ambushed. He's since returned home. He explains what happened, why the job attracted him and why he's not returning to Iraq.
