Celebrating Mother's Day from Afghanistan

May. 8, 2011
On Mother's Day, U.S. Army Private First Class Lexa M. Pagan is nearly 7,000 miles away from her four-year-old son, Yandel, and her parents, Mary and Axel Gonzales. But thanks to video communication, Lexa can share part of the holiday weekend video chatting with her family. Using both Skype and Google, Lexa does her best to visually interact with her son at least once a week.
