The Marine Corp And U.S. Army Annouce The Death Of Two Warriors Last Week – Week 29 Honor Post
Sadly, the loss of life continues. Since last Monday’s post, we have brought home two more hero’s to a senseless and mindless war that has no real end in sight. The longest running war, in the history of our country, only seems to be benefiting defense contractors; or so it would seem. The continuation of this war at this point serves no purpose to the citizens of the United States. Who is paying that bill?
