5 Years...

Today marks 5 years since our troops crossed the berm into Iraq. It's all over the news, speculation is being made as to how we are going to end this war. Here's what I want to know...how come we haven't on any "anniversary" mention that military operations started on October 7, 2001 in Afghanistan. FYI we still have troops there and they are sacrificing just as much and working just as hard as our troops in Iraq. I hate that when people mention the war they forget those who are serving in Afghanistan.

I don't want to get into a long blog about my beliefs on this war (maybe someday..but not today). The reality for my family is that in a couple months our Soldier heads back to Iraq.

I just wanted to mention that since the media is focused on the 5 year mark of this war (aren't we lucky they are acknowledging it at all?) that we should remember our troops that have served and are serving in Operation Enduring Freedom in Afghanistan as well.
It's crazy to think that my youngest child has lived most of his life in a time of war.

I so agree with you Nadine - more needs to be done to aknowledge the hard work our men & women do in Afghanistan as well. All we ever hear about is Iraq, Iraq, Iraq...but don't get me started...

Hugs to you and your loved ones!!!
