I considered adding this as an update to my recent post of Afghanistan, but this is far too important to relegate to update status.
Please, I urge you to read this account of a devastating attack on Combat Outpost Keating and then donate to the fund the American Legion has started. Our troops need our support, and morale is, at best, low. Remind them that our support and generosity aren't just for our enemies these days. Let them know their sacrifice is acknowledged and appreciated.
The men were donating blood during the battle for their fallen comrades.
Talk about duty, honor and sacrifice.
God bless them all.
