Afghanistan Today, the GWOT Hotspot (The Afghanistan Scandal?) 2/5/14-Wed. (329 days to go)

329 days to go for US troops in Afghanistan and US Marines are still taking casualties as retrograde operations continue. It is still a dangerous place to be and the Marine in the story at link one suffered a leg amputation due to an IED blast, along with other injuries. The retrograde operations continue with US forces closing bases and packing up equipment so all US troops can be out of Afghanistan by the 31 December 2014 deadline. May the Marine at link #1 find healing, and may his family be comforted during this time of recovery. Links from around the GWOT:

1.) US Marine injured by IED in Afghanistan, has one leg amputated, other injuries: pray for his recovery and for strength for his family. Link:
