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.

198 days to go for US troops in Afghanistan. I can only hope the US Congress stops Pres. Obama from keeping them there 2 more years past the Dec. 31, 2014 deadline to leave, perhaps by defunding this extra two years he wants to keep US troops there.
