Christopher Celiz is the most recent to die in Afghanistan. Too young, as were many before him. Success they say is a more stable Afghanistan, but when will Afghanistan be ready to fight on their own? 3,550 Casualties total, with these the most recent.
We are fighting a war in Afghanistan to keep the terrorist from entering the United States to the degree that we are fighting to keep them where we fight. Every time I see a story of a solider killed in combat, wounded in combat and trying to regain some sense of a normal life when he or she can no longer remain in the military my heart just loses a little of itself for the compassion
I feel for the family and loved ones left behind, and wondering where Our United States in which I live and my grandchildren will grow up in will be in 20 years.
