Mom – Day 176
I wonder if our young men and women would still volunteer to serve their country if they were told some of the following: there may be times that you will have to go without equipment essential to your job; there may be times when you won’t eat, not even MREs;
there will be many times that you will look at the enemy and know that you cannot do anything; there may be times when you will feel that the US government will have you feel abandoned; ……. I do think many of our men and women would still volunteer because they believe that the good in our country will eventually prevail – I don’t believe that our soldiers should be used as a political game piece when what the government wants for an outcome is not clear. Are our military in Afghanistan to win, to triumph over Al Qaeda and the Taliban?
I love you Zach
