If more members of Congress and high-ranking generals who push paper in an office in Washington, D.C., had the experience of being on the battlefield, they would understand the importance of returning every single troop or battalion of soldiers home all at the same time.
After being in the only battalion left behind on the battlefield in Iraq, two former military men in town commented to me that they were lucky to be home alive. Most of the soldiers were killed.
The United States has been in enough declared and undeclared wars to know the difference, but our members of Congress lack wisdom, integrity and honor when it comes to our military men and women.
It is frightening to know you are on a battlefield and might not make it home. It is disgusting to know that congressmen and congresswomen don't seem to care because they are safe in the Capitol with a 24-hour security guard.
