New mission to Iraq

Jon Stewart today said that the government keeps rewording the missions in Iraq to the point where they will start calling troops out there to become trees so that they never have to leave.

How true is this? Will we ever be out of there? NO!! There will always be a presence. For those who do not have family in the military it's hard for you to comprehend. But there always has been a presence and there always will. The fact that President Obama has to say "we should have troops out by 2012" is a bunch of bologna. Sure, they will not be going over there as frequently but they will be going. We, the families, do not get our hopes up. Our spouses, parents, siblings, best friends will always be gone for 1/2 of our lives while enlisted. And we deal with it. We are strong!

Now, if the rest of the country can be strong too and stop demanding things that will never happen the way they think it will.

  1. I'm with you Becky. I have been there and done that, and you are right, it will always be that way as long as we have a military. Your Mom has been through the same things you are going through now. It is never easy but one day will come to an end. All you can do is hang in there, do your best for Wayne and be there for Matthew. I love you
