Afghanistan Today, the GWOT Hotspot (The Afghanistan Scandal?) 10-31-13-Thurs.

While American troops are in a retrograde operation in Afghanistan, they are still in a war zone. Keep them in your prayers. In the meantime, a Marine Major who tried to warn Marines in Afghanistan of the danger they were in, faces a Board of Inquiry and separation from the Marine Corps. Why? He used an insecure communication line to relay this information. In any case, his warning was not heeded and three Marines were murdered, one injured in an insider attack. After they fight on the battlefield, Marines must them often fight in court. Pray for this Marine Major too. Links from around the GWOT:

Another day in Afghanistan for U.S. troops. Another day to pray for U.S. troops in Afghanistan. Although they are in retrograde operations from here on out, packing up smaller outposts, then outposts a little larger, until they pack it all in by 31 December 2014, it is an area in which they earn combat pay and they are still being killed and injured.

1.) As the US leaves Afghanistan, engineers protect the roads:

Another day of packing up for US troops in the retrograde operation in Afghanistan. God bless then and keep them in your prayers as it is still a dangerous situation with US troops still being killed and wounded.

American troops need our prayers as they continue the retrograde operation in Afghanistan. The story at link #1 describes how some of the US equipment is being sold for scrap. I still can’t get over how three weeks ago over 20 US Army Rangers were injured, including four soldiers killed, which included Army nurse 1st Lt. Jennifer Moreno. She was promoted posthumously to Captain. RIP soldiers. Links from around the GWOT:

Another fine fall day in America with brats on the grill and football season in full gear. Americans tailgate with beer, brats, and other favorites, while U.S. troops remain in dangerous Afghanistan conducting retrograde operations. May God bless and protect our troops who are packing up and winding down combat operations by 31 December 2014. Links from around the GWOT:

The retrograde continues in Afghanistan. Pray for American troops there as they are still in harm’s way.
