There is no doubt the United States Army has suffered greatly the last couple months taking more casualties than any other branch of the service; three (3) more have paid the ultimate price since last Monday’s post. As irony would have it, I visited the original training site of the 10th Mountain Division up near Leadville CO on Father's Day and today I see we have lost 2 from that very division. Why do we continue to let American's die for someone else's freedom? Enough is enough...
