Everyone was told the war was going to end in 2014. You were told this was your last deployment to Afghanistan. You were told a lot of things, now your being told that even after 2014, we will have warriors in harm’s way. My thought, if the war is over all of a sudden in 2014 by some “magical reason”, why wouldn’t we bring all the troops home? If it’s not over, why are leaving a small footprint to remain compounded with the sequestration, it doesn’t sound like a lot of fun…..or very safe. However, we brought all of the troops out of Iraq right? Ya, they are out of Iraq and they all moved back into Kuwait, sitting waiting in case they have to go back. I can see this happening in Afghanistan, they will be out of Helmond but we will really be out of Afghanistan? Doesn’t sound like it.
Time for a C-Gar
