4,489 killed. 32,021 wounded; I'm going out on a limb to say that might not include PTSD.
For people who drop their weapons and run away in their underwear.
I am not a good follower of politics. I am more an observer, and someone who cares for those who fight the fight and clean up the messes that the politicians leave. I am ashamed. I should be more active, I should be more informed. Maybe one more voice would have kept my sons from mourning friends who died, or were injured, apparently, for nothing.
