We have sadly lost another Marine, Staff Sgt. Jonathan D. Davis,  who gave his life last Friday the 22nd.  I do believe though that we are seeing an end to our part in the war as it seems the Afghan Military is starting to do more of their part which translates to less American casualties. January 2013 there were 3 deaths compared to 26 in 2012 and February 2012 we saw 18 'Killed In Action."

KIA States last week: AZ
