Another work week winds down for Americans, while in Afghanistan retrograde operation continue to get the U.S. packed up and out of there by 31 December 2014. In the meantime, more US troops fall and are wounded in that country.  Two weekends ago four Americans died in an operation and 30 Rangers were wounded. One of those killed was Army nurse, 1st Lt. Jennifer Moreno who was posthumously promoted to Captain. Remember this nurse’s sacrifice and combat death, and the other three who fell with her. Pray for the many wounded. Links from around the GWOT:
