351 days to go for US troops in Afghanistan.

As the days wind down for American troops in Afghanistan they complete retrograde operations closing down US bases and packing up equipment so they can all be out of there by 31 December 2014. It is a still dangerous mission, keep them in your prayers.

Meanwhile, two fallen MARSOC Marines are to be awarded the Navy Cross for their actions in Afghanistan when attacked by a member of the Afghan military in a command center. Read the story at link #1 for complete details.
