Pray for American troops still in Afghanistan and packing up, closing down bases, as the US is in retrograde mode to get out of there by the deadline of 31 Dec. 2014. I hope they can get the job done before then and come home earlier than this date. In the meantime, US troops are still dying in Afghanistan. The latest is a National Guard soldier from Indiana who died of a non-combat illness. The type of illness was not revealed in this story. Links from around the GWOT:
