Four (4) More Soldiers From The United States Army ‘Killed In Action’ – Week 35 Honor Post
Sadly, the loss of life continues in 'Operation Enduring Freedom.' Since last Monday’s post, we have brought home four (4) more from the U.S. Army. This is especially troubling considering our possible involvement in Syria which to me would be an impeachable offense without the consent of Congress. Our country has shed enough blood for other countries. Syria is NOT our problem!
