47 days to go for US troops in Afghanistan. Good things Marines are now out of there, as they have other things to do, see link #1 for details. Marines want to see if Marines have an unconscious sex bias. We will see if this goes both ways, woman Marine bias against male marines and vice versa. Links from around the GWOT:

1.) Sounds like Marines are going to join the ranks of thought police! Then look at link #2 where Marines are lacking money and not ready to fight! Huh?! Link:

2.) Many Marines not ready to fight, lack resources. See link #1 and how does this jive?! Link:

53 days to go for US troops in Afghanistan, and their victory parade has been put on hold again. Sen. Schemer of NY advocated a victory parade for Afghanistan and Iraq veterans, but due to continued US combat operations in Iraq and Syria, he now says it needs to be put on hold until victory is secured by US troops in combat in Iraq and Syria. Read the details at link #1.

It is the last Veteran’s Day for US troops in Afghanistan. And, in the US, Americans celebrate celebrate Veteran’s Day today. God bless our American veterans.

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.

77 days to go for US troops in Afghanistan, but as this war ends, President Obama sends troops to Africa to fight Ebola. Yesterday he also signed an order for the Reserves, National Guard and Individual Ready Reserve to be called up. In the meantime US vets are committing suicide at the rate reports say, of 22 per day. See link one for the story of a Marine amputee who took his own life.
