    I have sent a husband, son, and son-in law to Iraq. Thank God they made it home safe. My heart goes out to these families who are losing their loved ones.
    I am so opposed to the Afgan war because the rules of engagement have changed. If the average American knew how our troops are being asked to fight this war, I believe you would stand with me on this... bring them home! NOW!!!
