Afghanistan Today, the GWOT Hotspot (The Afghanistan Scandal?) 6-18-14-Wed. (196 days to go)

196 days to go for US troops in Afghanistan. Let’s hope (and pray) the president’s call for two more years of US troops in Afghanistan after the deadline to withdrawal of Dec. 31, 2014 passes does not come to reality, and the US Congress can stop it, and/or defund it. God bless American troops. Retrograde operations continue as US troops pack up and close bases to meet the 12-31-14 deadline.

Links from around the GWOT:

1.) When US troops leave military service, this story reports some have problems getting hired in the civilian workforce as employers fear they have suffered emotionally in the war zone and have battle fatigue or combat stress, otherwise known as Post Traumatic Stress (PTS). There is a move afoot, such as by a recent recipient of the Medal of Honor, to drop the “D” so there is not a stigma of “disorder” added to it, so PTSD is becoming PTS. Link:
