Stessfull on the families, sure, stretched, sure, but the troops want to get this WOT over with. And they are willing to do whatever hard work is necessary.
They just need the funding.
Bless your son and the head of the Marines who want to redeploy some Marines to Afghanistan.
My grandson, 173rd Paratrooper, (son of a former Marine,) is in the deadliest area of Afghanistan, "Taliban Central" in the Korengal = over 500 firefights first 6 months, KIA/wounded rate 1 in 4! - they are in NEED of more boots on the ground...
It seems to be Casey who's balking on it - Territorial imperatives?
Time - PAST time = for the traitors in DC to fund our troops and time for Casey to put his ego in his back pocket.
I can’t help but wonder about how they would view the stresses on the families during WWII? Some of those wives at home got a piece of mail once a month. We’re so spoiled.
Not only that, but I’d wager that the stress is compounded exponentially by the baloney that gets played out in the enemedia and by the Congress every day. Ugh!
God bless your son and prayers for his safety!
Thank your son for his service and please tell him that we are beginning to see what Michael Yon has been saying for a few months that Iraq is a victory and Afghanistan is fast reaching the point of a “do-over” due to Taliban-Terrorist resurgance.
