Do we really care about the soldiers, asks a First Lieutenant in Afghanistan? See report. Do we support pay raises for the troops? Have we petitioned Congress? Have we sent letters to our Congressmen? He adds if we want them to stay overseas, tell our representatives. If we want them to leave, tell our representatives. But, he rightly adds, otherwise, to do nothing is simple complaining.
Speaking as a former deployed soldier, i know it is easy to be over there and think no one back home gives a whit about you. We can and should do more. A deployed soldier should never have to wonder if the folks back home care.
