Afghanistan Today, your portal to the United States’ growing nightmare abroad.

Afghanistan Today, the GWOT Hotspot (The Afghanistan Scandal?) 1-3-14-Th. (363 Days Left)

leave a comment »

My count had it at approximately 363 days left for US troops in Afghanistan. The withdrawal date is 31 December 2014. God bless American troops as they complete retrograde operations while still in a danger zone earning combat pay. American troops are still dying in Afghanistan, and others being injured. Pray for their safe return, and that they can complete the retrograde operations, closing US bases and packing up equipment to return to US bases long before the 31 Dec. 2014 deadline.

Links from around the GWOT:

2.) Retrograde operations are ongoing, but it is still a dangerous war zone in Afghanistan, and combat pay still earned. And, now, another Marine death reported there. RIP Marine:
