Reaction from Phoenix military families on Petraeus nomination

Posted: Updated:

PHOENIX - President Obama has nominated General David Petraeus to take McChrystal's place. Petraeus led the successful surge in Iraq.

Jared Dillingham talked with military families here in Phoenix about what they think of this big change in the middle of a war.

Bit of a mixed reaction, but most seem surprised that General McChrystal would make these comments and at the same time concerned that the whole thing's become too much of a distraction.
