Where's bin Laden today?

I imagine many of you think this is a good question. In a different place, in a different time, it may be a good question to ask someone who has actually been looking. Why, pray tell, do you ask every servicemember who ever stepped foot in Afghanistan where Osama is? Do you not understand that many people have other major responsibilities to attend to instead?

There is a huge disconnect, even within ourselves and the other patriots who read what we write. The best way for me to explain this is point you to someone who was there, who lived through that hellish place, and survived it. Prayerfully. Please go over to Bill and Bob's Excellent Afghan Adventure and read, "Where Is Osama?"

He has written a very powerful and understandable post that will give you some insight as to what it is like to be over there, what it is like to lose someone, what it is like when you come home, and the disconnect which is truly felt. He knows, better than most, the price to be paid if we quit, just give up.

Please leave him a comment and let him know what you think of his post. Please give him some encouragement if it is in you. BE KIND. If not, I shall find out and you will not want to show your face again. Well, maybe not, but please remember that you have your freedom to do as you please because of men like him. This man is my hero, so please keep that in mind. If you are a nut, please don't bother him. Bother me instead. Okay?

Thank you everyone for all you do for our troops and their families. God bless you all.
