Just a thought…

U.S. Army National Guard Spc. Timothy Shout, a native of Austin, Texas, scans the nearby ridge line along with other members of the Provincial Reconstruction Team Kunar Security Force element, following an engagement with anti-Afghan forces.  Shout is deployed from Alpha Company, 1st Battalion, 143rd Infantry (Airborne) out of Austin, Texas. The unit took small-arms fire from a nearby mountain top during a routine patrol, and was able to suppress the enemy with the assistance of local Afghan National Security Forces.

Mission Finally Accomplished – it’s over


“And in the quiet of night, you will recall that your heart was once touched by fire. You will know that you answered when your country called; you served a cause greater than yourselves; you helped forge a just and lasting peace with Iraq, and among all nations. I could not be prouder of you, and America could not be prouder of you.”

– President Obama at Ft. Bragg, North Carolina, honoring combat veterans coming home from Iraq
