76 days to go for US troops in Afghanistan. As the date gets near for all US troops to leave Afghanistan on Dec. 31, 2014, some units are leaving now.

Links from around the GWOT:

1.) An Air Force Squad prepares to leave Afghanistan:

82 days to go for US troops and the waste of US taxpayer money continues in Afghanistan. Not to mention the loss of life, blood and limb for US troops in this country.

Links from around the GWOT:

1.) US taxpayer funds wasted in Afghanistan, planes scrapped:

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.

253 days to go for US troops in Afghanistan.

Links from around the GWOT:

1.) Four US Airmen to receive award. Incredible, I thought, as I read about Maj. Harvey: he helped, over a 3 month period, “neutralize” 99 enemy combatants and capture 49 more! I wonder if he has been nominated for any medals for valor for this work in Afghanistan? Link:

Pray for American troops worldwide. Today the Armed Forces Network, at last report is turned off. So, they will not even be able to watch NFL football on AFN. God bless America’s enlisted troops doing their job each day. Links from around the GWOT:

1.) Female US Air Force Afghanistan veteran has adjustment problems when returned to civilian life:
