I've seen a lot of news stories lately about the last of the combat troops leaving Iraq. The last time I checked my husband and his entire brigade are still in Iraq. They are still going on patrols, outside the wire, with their weapons. They are still responding to calls about IED's; Still responding to reports about people shooting mortor rounds. I don't like it how you are trying to make people think that all of the troops are out of Iraq just because you changed the name to no longer include "combat" and are now calling it "advise and assist". There are thousands of American soldiers in Iraq who are still patroling and still in danger. I would just like you to know that you aren't fooling me. Nice try though.
