Congressman Jones Reacts To More Troops Headed To Afghanistan

Congressman Walter Jones says it's never an easy decision to send our brave men and women overseas to fight for our freedom -- but realizes President Obama has a plan.

Congressman Jones was reacting Tuesday night to the Defense Department announcement that 17,000 troops will deploy to Afghanistan including 8,000 Marines from Camp Lejeune

Jones says, "Our men and women in uniform have given so much--three, four, and five trips to Afghanistan and Iraq. And I hope that the President, if he's going to make this commitment and continue to enlarge the number of forces going into Afghanistan--I hope he gets some help from NATO.
