Afghanistan Today, the GWOT (The Afghanistan Scandal?) 7-21-14 Mon. (163 days to go)
163 days to go for US troops in Afghanistan, as they complete retrograde operations for all troops and equipment to be out of there, and bases closed by 31 December 2014.
Today President Obama awards the Medal of Honor to a soldier for his actions in Afghanistan. One story had a photo of a bracelet the soldier wears honoring the fallen, which helped deflect shrapnel and save his life. One soldier’s name on the bracelet is Sgt. Jeff Mersman of Parker, Kansas, killed in Afghanistan. Never forget!
