It’s over. After 20 years, finally and officially over.
The war in Afghanistan is done. In what no one will recognize as a truly bi-partisan effort, President Biden officially ended the war and set the date for the troops to come home. Paying off on a promise President Trump made during his campaign in 2016 and set in motion in 2020.
As 24 and 22 year veterans ourselves, of course Hupp and I are biased and all in favor.
Presidents Bush and Obama both made threats/promises to get the troops back but it was Presidents Trump and then Biden who managed to actually get it done.
This is clearly not getting nearly the play it deserves. Go figure. Neither side can manage to turn it into a political missile to fire at the other so of course no lip service from the “media”.
Not a problem. As per usual, Tony and I will carry the water for those so called professionals who have long since forgotten what professionalism means.
