media mix up

For everyone who thinks this war is over...
It's not.
 The political phrase that "combat missions have ended" may be your reality to the war ending, or what our media and politicians want you to believe is the end of the war, but to the families who lost their husband, father, son on December 13th, a team not technically there for a combat mission, the war is not over.

For those service members that witnessed that attack definitely don't feel like the war is over and those families who got that gut wrenching knock on the door sure as hell feel this war in the worst way possible.
Our military and the military of other countries are still fighting for you and fighting for a better tomorrow.

  1. That is so true. If you're not living it it's so hard to get a clear picture of what all is going on - especially since the media is stuck on the idea that everything over there is going to magically stop because we say so.

    Know that I'm praying for you and your husband!

  2. Such a great reminder! I always forget that the rest of the world does see and isn't impacted daily by what is really going on. Thinking of you guys!

  3. Thank you! I said the same thing when the media announced the war in Iraq was over and everyone was coming home. My husband was in Afghanistan at the time. It pissed me off to no end when I heard them talking. Not everyone was going home!

  4. As a husband and a vet, I know first hand that just because "combat missions have ended" it doesn't mean the war is over, that all our servicemen and women are home or even safe.

    Thanks to all our current and past members of the military for their efforts, and for risking their lives to protect those of us at home. Even if we are "not at war."

    And thanks to all the spouses. Our families truly keep us going.
