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.

The days wind down for US troops in Afghanistan, yet, on Sept. 30, 2014, President Obama signed up for 10 more years. Will Congress fund this extension?

Meanwhile, another sad case concerning a US military member, see link #1.

Supposed to be only about 90 days to go for US troops in Afghanistan who were all supposed to leave 12/31/14. But, President Obama, on Tuesday of this week extended their mission there at least ten more years until 2024!!! Unbelievable. Will the US Congress step forward and defund it?

Meanwhile the still unnamed war campaign against ISIS is reported to have suffered its first loss of an American life, a Marine lost at sea. See the story at link #1.

The US was supposed to leave Afghanistan about 92 days from now, on 12/31/14. Now, President Obama as of yesterday has signed a deal to keep US troops in this war zone at least 10 more years. Read the story about it at link #1. One can only hope the US Congress will not fund it and bring all U s troops home 12/31/14.
