Sunday in America and another day at war for US troops remaining in Afghanistan. God bless America’s enlisted troops, and may they have new leadership which will consider them paramount, and have a culture of victory to instill in the troops they lead. The heartbreak from a lack of winning leadership in the US military general officers, reverberates as each limb is lost, and each life ebbs out of our innocent American troops. This music video expresses the heartbreak of losing a son to war. God bless our troops. Keep them and their families in your thoughts and prayers. Links from around the GWOT:

1.) “I Drive Your Truck” by Lee Brice expresses the heartbreak American families face with losing a son or daughter to war. Excellent video and song. Tear jerker. Link:

A weekend at home in the USA while our troops still toil in the Afghanistan war which is becoming more scandalous as the days go on. The enlisted troops are doing their jobs, but those at the top do not have a focus on victory. God bless the US enlisted man (and women). Links from around the GWOT:

1.) New US commander in Afghanistan, Marine Gen. Dunford already issuing apologies. In fact, I believe he game apologies immediately after his arrival, this isn’t the first time he has apologized. Story states that NATO accepts responsibility for the deaths of 2 Afghan boys. US troops need to come home now and bring our money with them. Link:

A week at war for US troops comes to an end and a new month begins. May US enlisted troops be blessed with new leaders who have a culture of victory they can instill in the troops they lead. God bless the USA. Links from around the GWOT:

1.)  Draw down troops in Afghanistan, from USA Today:

http://www.usatoday.com/story/news/politics/2013/02/28/obama-afghanistan-troops-state-of-the-union/1935547/

2.) Disgrace and scandal in Afghanistan while the United States suffers from budget cuts, our US tax dollars are being spent in an out of control fashion in that country. The US needs to bring all troops home now including the Army Corps of Engineers and bring our money with them. The disgrace is that the US does not have money to have a contractor party in Afghanistan. Shut down this scandal and bring the US troops and money home NOW, not Dec. 31. 2014. Contact your elected officials if you want to stop this American taxpayer money pouring into Afghanistan. Link:
