299 days to go in a war that can’t end soon enough in Afghanistan. It would be great if the retrograde operations, packing equipment and closing bases could be done faster and completed in advance of the 31 December 2014 deadline, so US troops can leave earlier from this still dangerous country.

Links from around the GWOT:

1.) American amputees from the war in Afghanistan: a sobering cost of war:

2.) Army 1st Lt., Nurse Jennifer Moreno killed in the blast which took the legs of a Ranger featured in the story at link #1. NEVER FORGET this October 2013 attack which killed 4 Americans and injured 30 US troops. Link:
