The Afghanistan disaster has cost this great nation and wounded our youth for life. The millions that have been spent have brought this country economic disaster and virtually nothing has been accomplished.

Let those in this country live the lifestyle they prefer and let us end this obligation that could go on forever.

As a retired Marine, I tried to volunteer as a helicopter pilot but was informed that I was too old.

Thousands of our youth continue to serve repeated tours of duty at a cost of death, wounds that stay for life and a continuous drain on our economy.

We must withdraw immediately to save our fragile economy and the lives of our outstanding youth.
