Pray for our troops. God bless them and God bless America.

1.) Women Marines to go to infantry officer school. The story states Congress must decide if they can lead Marines in combat. Isn’t this wasting money and a slot that might be needed in battle, if we train women Marines at infantry officer school and they cannot be infantry officers? Link:

2.) Personnel chiefs call for Tricare rate increases. A suggestion: quit spending $2 billion a week in Afghanistan. Don’t plan to pay billions for Afghanistan’s military for 10 more years. We need the money to take care of our own. Tell Karzai to use the money he is getting from China and other countries for other mining rights. Link:
