134 days left for US troops in Afghanistan, as they complete retrograde operations in preparation for all US troops to leave that country by 31 December 2014.

Remember our injured troops, and families of the fallen in your prayers.

Remember in your prayers, the family of Sgt. Rob Richards, Marine Sniper, Purple Heart recipient, who was found dead in his home in North Carolina a week ago tomorrow.

1.) RIP Marine Sgt., Purple Heart Recipient, Rob Richards:

140 days to go for US troops in Afghanistan, who are in danger to this day as they complete retrograde operations by 31 December 2014. 

Plinks from around the GWOT:

1.) Obama training approximately 87,000 Taliban to fight. What? The explanation is that at least one-fourth of Afghan troops, or 87,000 are Taliban or Al Qaeda infiltrators. Link:

250 days to go for US troops in Afghanistan as they complete retrograde operations (closing bases, packing equipment) and head home by 12-31-14. While this plan to leave, and hopefully take our money with us, is supposedly set in stone, there seems to be a push to keep US troops there past that date! I say NO to that! Also, the US can no longer fund and quip the Afghan military, as our country is broke! We need to fund US troops and veterans!
