Danny Sjursen, a veteran of the wars in both Iraq and Afghanistan, marks the one year anniversary of the last combat death in Afghanistan--the longest record in two decades. It's a record we can hold forever if we bring our troops home.
Jerry King, a resident of Longview, Texas, writes in a letter to the editor of his local newspaper that he prays President Biden will do the right thing for America, including pardons for Edward Snowden and Julian Assange and ending our endless wars.
Once again demonstrating how the federal government possesses too much contol over the state National Guard, there has been extension of the Guard's stay in Washington DC despite no apparent threat in the near future. These units would better serve Americans protecting their own communities.
