"I pray every night that God will hold him, because I can't," weeps Ozawa Skipper-Coleman, whose son is an Iraqi War  

veteran. Her son, Daryl, tried to kill his wife and is now in jail in Alaska. 

Ozawa alleges that his son was suffering from post-traumatic stress and that the military didn't offer any mental support for  

him once he returned home from the war after an 18-month tour. 

"Sometimes all I can do is just pray," said Ozawa.  

"I just want to hold my son one more time."
