Please pray for the family of a fallen friend who was shot in the back by an Afghan he was training.

He was a close friend and family we trained together for years!

He will be dearly missed!

I see no reason for us to trust anyone over there. Anyone...

My heart weeps for this person.

I’ve turned off the TV and radio for the most part for over one year now. Have missed nothing. We have a clueless president, clueless Republican leadership... and we’ve learned that our military leaders are sexually addicted.

The sad thing is the GI out in the trenches.

Did they catch the guy who did this? If so, what’s going to happen to him?

Get our boys out of there, then nuke the poppy fields.

Sorry!

I was once informed by my brothers service member who posted a killed service member and he received an article 15 charge.

I am assuming this for this post as well?

I feel so “sorry” for this soldier and “helpless” at the same time! If the United States is NOT going to fight this as a war, then lets get the hell out of there and let the Afghans police their own Country!

I am just sick to my stomach over this kind of senseless killings (murders) and if it was the US military doing the killing, there would be such an outcry and demand for worldwide condemnation and charges filed in the world court and demand for the death sentence.

Did they capture the killer? Who did this killer get by security and who was involved?

The socialist in the WH has declared war on the American people, but, won’t allow our military in Afghanistan to fight this war on terror!

Our service members will suffer for this idiot president!

“Get our boys out of there, then nuke the poppy fields.”

Why stoppy at the poppy fields?

A country who’s national sport (Buz Kashi)involves carrying a decapitated goat (while on horse-back) over a goal line while the other team (also on horse-back) tries to beat you to a pulp (deadly weapons outlawed in the game in the 60s?)?

YMMV

My son got out of Afghanistan last week, alive and well. I am so relieved that he is now stationed in Germany and away from the back stabbing Afghanistan co-workers.

Condolences for your friend. It's a great loss.

Shouldn't you be under "River City" at this time?
