Peter LaCount considered taking the day off from work after the war began in Iraq. He thought he might need to settle himself in a reality he hadn't had the time to accept. But chasing a 2-year-old around doesn't leave LaCount much opportunity for quiet reflection. And, he thought too, he'd save the time off for that unknown future date when his wife, Susan, a major in the Army Reserves, comes home from the Middle East. So LaCount finished unloading the dishwasher in his Catonsville kitchen with the help of daughter Grace, still clad in her fuzzy pink-footed sleepers, and prepared yesterday morning to leave for the office.
