I agree, it needs to end. It always breaks my heart a bit when I hear about another soldier death.

It is unsettling for me when people ask where my fiance is and I tell them deployed in Afghanistan and they look me directly in the face and say, “Really??? I didn’t know we even had soldiers there still!” I want to scream “How could you not know!?” This war has been going on so long that people don’t even realize we still have soldiers: sons, daughters, sisters, brothers, mothers, and fathers in war zones, in dangerous situations every day. I too pray for peace, but I know our military will most likely be called upon to help another nation soon. So I put my faith in God and in His will, and I continuously pray over my soldier and the rest of our military. God bless our troops and God bless America!
I’ve harped on this 1,000 times. Blogged about this 1,000 times. Ranted on FB about this 1,000 times. It’s never enough. My opinions on war changed after I became a part of it and watched what happens. I was raised in an extremely pro-military family but never once thought I’d ever experience what it was like to love someone who was at war, let alone watch them come back an entirely different person and my entire world fall apart. It’s a mess. It’s a tragedy and like everyone else, every time I hear the DOD announce another casualty, it kills me. I would give anything to rewind the hands of time and erase all that has happened with this war over the past 11 years. Anything.

The general population is definitely under the impression that we are no longer sending troops over. Hopefully it ends soon, but I don’t know that we’ll ever be at a place where we are no longer sending troops over
