316 days to go for US troops in Afghanistan as they complete retrograde operations. While packing equipment and closing bases, it remains a dangerous country for US troops to be in. On 15 February 2014, a MARSOC Marine, Master Sgt. Aaron Torian was killed in action by what is reported to have been a pressure plate IED. It was reported he lost his legs, and died in surgery after being evacuated from the battlefield. Pray for his family and fellow Marines. RIP Master Sgt. Links from around the GWOT:
