    I remember waking up one morning last year to the radio announcer saying "Obama has declared the end of the war in Afghanistan.

    Why are troops still there and dying daily??????

    They should have never been sent there in the first place.

    Condolences to the loved ones of these two men. So sad.

    This is so sad. I hope we bring all our troops home safe and sound.

    RIP Soldiers
