97 days to go for US troops in Afghanistan and let’s hope it’s not extended one more day, so US troops can come home and the US taxpayer can stop funding this country.

13th anniversary of the 9/11/01 attacks. God bless our troops and military.

Now while the US leaves Afghanistan in 112 days, more wars are brewing, as evidenced by a war speech by the Commander-in-Chief On
Ba a last night. Now it looks like the US is leaving Afghanistan, but going back to Iraq, and into Syria.

258 days to go for US troops in Afghanistan. Keep them in your prayers as they complete retrograde operations, closing bases, and packing up equipment in this still dangerous country, where it was just reported that another US soldier, from the 10th Mountain Division out of Ft. Drum, NY, was killed.
