Afghanistan & Death as a Time Warp....

Just a few weeks ago I was reading the Death Toll figures for our soldiers in Afghanistan, as reported in the PeeDee. I realized that the count was a number of a year of the Twentieth Century, some that I had already lived through. On July 31st, 2012, they reported the number of our sons and daughters killed there was at 1,935. Just yesterday we had made it to 1948. Today, we jumped past my birthday and landed in 1950. Then I hear the story that 3 of our men were killed by their host after being invited to dinner. They were not counted in that figure. So. tomorrow, we will time warp to at least 1953. Is it too much to ask to get our people back home before the century ends again?!
