Going back to Afghanistan… to keep our honor.


As the last of the cargo planes have left the tarmac in the Kabul airport and the last troops bid adieu to the nation of Afghanistan some one hundred American citizens and countless Afghanistan citizens now face a perilous existence, Americans can now reflect….

A sizable portion of our population (about 29%) feel perfectly fine with conditions as they are. Were they stranded in some remote hell-hole, I would be perfectly content with stranding them and would not give a thought to their future. That said, the majority of us remember why they went and the degree to which they sacrificed their personal safety so that we might sleep better at night. To those brave soldiers we feel we owe them a debt.

I am just a simple man with a head full of sand who is currently residing in a small town called Forsyth Missouri. I enjoy hiking, camping and all things related to gardening. I rec’d my degree from SIU majoring in Biology many moons ago and still maintain a great interest in the study of all living things. My hobbies include meteorology, the Finnish language and inhabiting cyberspace whenever possible.
