Another day of peril for our enlisted men and women in Afghanistan. Pray for these troops. Pray for new leadership which puts their safety and victory paramount. Links from around the GWOT:

1.)  Rising insider attacks in Afghanistan:

2.) NY Times story is an excellent description about what is going on in the VA system and what our troops face. When a service member is honorably discharged they should be automatically signed up for the VA and receive a medical card on the spot like one signing up for Costco, they get a photo ID on the spot. Then, when they get back home, they will already be enrolled in the VA system and have their medical card. Link:
