Our nation has been engaged in wars in Iraq and Afghanistan for a dozen or so years. Americans are very patriotic while they await a resolution of the wars. Our volunteers in our Armed Forces are as brave and committed as Americans who fought in any of our wars. They are well trained and believe in their missions. We are proud of them.
They are fortunate compared to some of our troops in other wars. They are treated as heroes and with respect when they return from the war zones. Many have been deployed twice and as many as four or five times. Many are reservists and to be deployed once and then sent back several more times is physically and mentally stressful.
