Yesterday, 07Oct, our longest war began…..the year was 2001 in case you had forgotten….or lousy at math…..18 years of death and destruction…..
Finally my greatest fear has been realized…that is that we would have people fighting this endless war that were born after the war had begun….and yes we have such a reality….
Pvt. Hunter Nines is about to join a war nearly as old as he is.
The 18-year-old discussed with ABC News his impending combat deployment to Afghanistan — his first with the Army.
“I didn’t have a lot of thoughts on Afghanistan in particular,” said Nines, who was 7 months old when U.S. troops first arrived there. “I honestly just had the notion of I wanted to serve, and wherever that is, that’s where I’ll go.”

How do our veterans feel about this endless war?
The anniversary is significant not only for marking the beginning of the war on terror, but as a reminder that the United States Armed Forces now has enlistees who were born after the September 11, 2001, attacks.
The Post Register spoke to veterans of the Afghanistan War to learn their views of the war, its place in history and their experiences serving overseas. All of them said they felt the war had lost all purpose long ago. Many of them in separate interviews said the war that began with a clear mission to protect the country from another terrorist attack has been reduced to an aimless mission that costs lives and taxpayer dollars in a futile attempt to win the “hearts and minds” of people who no longer want them there.
Sadly how vets feel about this conflict mean NOTHING to the people or the government……once again I blame the lack of a shared experience about the effects and consequences of war.
This war without end will go on and on…that is until the corporate media says it is time for it to end.
Time to do the military a favor and end this senseless war….
