Afghanistan Today, your portal to the United States’ growing nightmare abroad.

Afghanistan Today, the GWOT Hotspot (The Afghanistan Scandal?) 5-3-14-Sat. (242 days to go)

leave a comment »

Another weekend in Afghanistan for US troops who have 242 days to go before they all leave that country by 12-31-14. Keep them in your thoughts and prayers.

As the US completes retrograde operations and leaves Afghanistan, keep US troops and veterans of these wars of the last 13 years in your prayers as many have mental and physical wounds which need treatment.

Links from around the GWOT:

1.)  RIP Army Capt. Kelly Hasselman.

RIP soldier: 2011 photo of Capt. Kelly Hasselman shows her playing disc golf.

The 29-year old Ft. Bliss soldier died 4/19/14 and no official cause of death has been released by the Army. The decorated soldier had two tours of Afghanistan. Serving our country not once, but twice in this dangerous war zone, the second time as the commander of a Female Engagement Team, reported to be a first for Ft. Bliss.

God bless our troops and veterans who give so much in service to our country protecting our freedoms, and prayers for the families. Condolences to the loved ones of Capt. Hasselman in this time of loss.
