279 days to go for US troops in Afghanistan. It is a still dangerous retrograde mission going on, with US troops still taking casualties, so keep them in your prayers. Links from around the GWOT:

2.) Only 2 Marine survivors of 2006 helicopter crash in Africa meet their rescuers. One was a woman Marine pilot, one a male Marine, both had to swim to shore in the crash that killed all the other Marines. Link:
