I feel sorry for our soldiers who are fighting in Afghanistan.

They've got it a lot tougher than we did when I was a young soldier serving in Viet Nam with the 1st Signal Brigade and the 101st Airborne Division.

Just like me, most of them probably joined the United States Army for the opportunities to escape poverty and seek honorable advancement in life.

Because of the downsizing of our military forces, coupled with multiple missions around the globe, our soldiers have to serve multiple tours, with too brief breaks of only a few months to visit their families, retrain, rearm, and redeploy.

They see their buddies blown apart, and with all those multiple tours, and repeated patrols, surely, they've got to be wondering how much longer their own luck will hold out?

On top of that, they HAVE to be aware of what is going on back home in this, their own country, the United States of America.

That alone, must be VERY discouraging, for they're probably wondering just what it is they're being asked to risk their lives for?

Our own government, and their own commissioned officers, are ordering these soldiers to accept homosexuality!

Because an imminent civil war is pending right here at home in the United States of America, maybe they're also wondering what will happen, and what they, themselves, will do when their commanders order them to open fire on their fellow American citizens?

Or, since they represent the government, how will they feel about their fellow American citizens ambushing them?

It happened in 1775.

It happened again in 1861.

Now, it's our turn.

No wonder troop morale is so low, and troops are exhausted!
