Very good article, and a very sad one also. The jobs, economy and health care are important, but so is our military, and somewhere along the way it seems to have fallen way down on the charts and taken a back seat to other things. This is one area that should remain high on the charts, not just for moral purposes in regards to our people over there, not just for military families left behind , but for keeping on top of things, having the best and latest equipment available. If we have enough funds to help out and support people that milk the system, the loafers, giving to a lot of these illegals that pour into this country, free this, free that, then we certainly should have enough for our military and to keep them supplies with the latest equipment. If we don't, then we need to cut back on all the other handouts.
It's been a long war, and it's almost like some people are yawning and looking the other way when this is brought up. Cut back on other things, but not our military. Is this what they call being out of sight, out of mind because the military is fighting elsewhere ? Thank goodness this horrific war isn't being fought on our own soil........then what would the govt. do ?

I see where it's said that the war in Afghanistan was a blip on Election Day polls, with only 10% rating this war as the most important issue. Yet locals in Luna County that embezzle, kill, rob, get arrested for one thing or another got more comments on this Forum than this article did. What a shame we've gotten so complacent over this war, and that for all the people who lost their lives or were maimed, for all the families having to hold down the fort while their loved ones are off to war, that this article didn't get that much attention. Thank you Retired Captain Autobee for this article.
