Pray for American troops around the world this Sunday. God bless them for their service. It’s another Christmas for US troops in Afghanistan, as they continue retrograde operations to be out of that country by 31 Dec. 2014, in a still dangerous country. Links from around the GWOT:

1.) A story every American needs to read, a video every American needs to watch of a US soldier who lost half his body to wounds suffered in Afghanistan. It states he is being medically retired, and it is a reminder that the US Congress needs to fix the bill they just passed to cut the COLA of medically retired and retired vets. This needs to be the first order of the day for them in 2014. Link:
