In the last 10 years the United States Army has done an incredible job with less Soldiers and fewer casualties than any military in a major war. Some have completed the Iraq mission and are headed home. The focus is now on finishing the job in Afghanistan.
To all the troops still deployed: I know what it’s like being overseas and deployed to a combat zone during the holidays away from family. During my Army career, I spent more time outside the country, (in peace and war) than stateside.
You’re doing a great job, and it cannot be said enough.
To all: Have a Merry Christmas and a Happy and safe New Year.
