2.) While Afghanistan’s fighting season begins, a story appears on the front page of the Kansas City Star which should be read. I e-mailed my elected officials about it, and said this unit needs an overdue medal ceremony, and they should begin investigations into the enslavement of Ugandan women in Iraq. The Kansas City, Kansas Army Reserve unit saved some of the women, and the Kansas City Star and its writer Mary Sanchez have exposed a condition which should not exist in Iraq and needs investigated.
