I can't even imagine what our heroes and their families are facing everyday. How can anyone ignore their needs when they have given so much to all of us? This is heart wrenching!

I don't know if you saw the the interview I did on Chanel 41 on the 18th. The reasons for the story was the high number of military suicides in July. I pray this number goes down. I pray for the day it is zero.

Oliver Leo Breedon has the right idea about not haveinf poeople that were in a "War Zone" makr the deciesions, but more than that stay away from the UN. Get the UN out of America, and America out of the UN.
Think about it, every time we fight someone and the UN is involved we lose, Korea, Viet-Nam, Bosnia, and others. We win when left to our selves, Granada, Panama, WWI, WWII, the UN is nothing but a blood-sucking blight on the American Defender, giving secrets to the enemy and living in...

We win when left to our selves, Granada, Panama, WWI, WWII, the UN is nothing but a blood-sucking blight on the American Defender, giving secrets to the enemy and living in spender that they could never afford without American dollars. America suports 2/3 of the UN expenses and the rest od the World 1/3. No more UN telling me I can't have weapons in my house for protection and hunting. It is my Constitutional Right to bear arms. I live in Arizona and we can wear a gun on our hip or secreted on my person. This makes crooks wary of whom they attack. UN out of the US.

I'm sorry for the deaths, a nd if I could do some thing about them I would be standing first in line. The sad fact is no one knows when some onr will snap and that is a shame.
As far as retreating because there are deaths in the "War Zone" that is going to happen, but it should be reported factually. How many were traffic accidents, driving off the road and crashing, training accidents and so on.
We are killing more service in thase types of accidents, drunck driving, texting and other...

We are killing more service in thase types of accidents, drunck driving, texting and other stupid things young people do. Not to mention the murders and accidentlt shooting of our service members.
When the facts come out it would not surprize me if there were less deaths in the "Combat Zones" than any other place. When you are in the shit you are watching for it and if you aren't you become a statisic, four years in Viet-Nam as a Radio Opearator, and six years in the Army taught me to be aware of my surrondings are don't be a statistic.
Of course these are my own thoughts and I could be wrong.

I was an Army brat in the 1950's my Father died active duty Korean War. I received so many benefits from the VA Bill, paying for it seemed to me mostly everything from growing up through college. Life has changed for the Veteran they get very little in benefits but still inlist and put themselves in harms way. They love our country and for that I thank them.

I am not a Veteran, but salute all who have serve...past, present, and future. It is such a sad statement that our military do not garner the assistance that is sorely needed when returning home for these horrible deployments. The Congress and Senate should be stripped of their lifetime benefits and those monies used to treat those in need. Are you aware that, after just ONE 2 year term in Congress, that person retains that annual salary for their entire lifetime? How many millions of...

How many millions of dollars does that add up to? not to mention the Senate side....

Instead of getting in a debate we should be looking at the cause- and the fix- and replacing the current administration as quickly as possible is a GREAT place to start. The Policy of this traitorous administration are enough to dishearten any patriot.

I am thankful for what we and the world have gone thru that we had this administaratin and not McCain. As bad as they have done rominny will do worse in my opinion. I don't think it is prudent to exchange a bad apple for a rotten one just because the one you have is bad.
