Pray for American troops as their days in Afghanistan are coming to an end with 69 days to go.

US Marines handed over their base, Camp Leatherneck, to the Afghans this week, and it was in the news they were all flying, at a time undisclosed to prevent any enemy attack on their flight out.

70 days left for US troops in Afghanistan, but meanwhile, the Global War on Terror continues. Keep American troops and veterans and their families in your thoughts and prayers.
