Soldiers and War
I think every American Soldier, throughout history, has wanted combat to stop… We do not fight just to fight; we go to complete the mission. I can tell you that there is a turn here - it is getting better. Life will not be 100% wonderful here in our lifetime (but I challenge anyone to name a large American city where nothing bad happens), but I think we can bring a new level of stability; and in turn this should bring a powerful partner in this region in keeping the guys who want to destroy America at bay. It should also help stabilize an area of the world that has the potential of starting a world war...
