    I am growing so weary of reading about another death and another everyday over what is now a senseless war with senseless rules of engagement! I am the wife, mother, and mother-in-law of former Warriors and Soldiers (Iraq) and I know that these men and women are highly trained and are capable of doing their jobs! LET THEM FIGHT OR BRING THEM HOME!!!
