    GOD bless these men and all their commarades. It is unfortunate that 8000 more of our NC military personnel of the 17000 that was announced recently will be deployed to Afganistan as well. It is ironic since Obama campaigned so hard here to out military population about bringing them home. God Bless these men and their families for the ultimate sacrifice.
