With a shortage of military personal, our troops are unable to guard and protect their backs.
Most likely they will make it home in a body bag because they have been picked off as if they were the target in a turkey shoot.
After being the only battalion left behind on the battlefield in Iraq, two former military men in town commented to me that they were lucky to be home alive. Most of the soldiers were killed.
The United States has been in enough declared and undeclared wars to know the difference, but our members of Congress lack wisdom and integrity and honor when it comes to our military men and women.
It is frightening to know you are a battlefield and you might not make it home.
It is disgusting to know that those in Congress don't seem to care because they are safe in the Capitol with a 24-hour security guard.
