America's LONGEST war,

How many deployments over-seas?
A Life-long Military career is 20 years - Afghanistan is now 13 years and counting,
No end in sight,
Lowest Pay Government employees, with highest risk,
What ARE we fighting?

As a Veretan myself,
Ya - I can understand.

What I CAN'T understand - and can hardly believe - is why the suicide rates aren't far higher than that!
