The kidnapping and execution of two hostages over the last five days in Iraq has foreign contractors worried.

Duncan aviation has 17 people working in Iraq and Kuwait through a government contract for airplane maintenance.

Program manager Darrell Logan recently returned from Kuwait and says it was an eye-opening experience working in a country filled with danger.

Logan says there are still several members of his team working in the Baghdad area. Although they are unable to leave the base, Logan says the men come under mortar and rocket propelled grenade attack every night.

His only advice to those thinking about working in Iraq is keep your eyes on your back and make sure you stay out of trouble.
