On this Valentine’s Day, we should remember the Bible passage from John:
Greater LOVE hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends. — John 15:13
There is no greater love than to be willing to die for your friends. These men live in that willingness every single day.

The War in Afghanistan has truly begun. This will be a long, difficult fight that is set to eclipse anything we’ve seen in Iraq. As 2010 unfolds, my 6th year of war coverage will unfold with it. There is relatively little interest in Afghanistan by comparison to previous interest in Iraq, and so reader interest is low. Afghanistan is serious, very deadly business. Like Iraq, however, it gets pushed around as a political brawling pit while the people fighting the war are mostly forgotten. The arguments at home seem more likely to revolve around a few words from the President than the ground realities of combat here.
It is so important to remember we still have thousands of fighting men and women in harm’s way. It is important to rid the world of these backwards, radical terrorists.
I am thankful that the Obama administration has chosen to continue bringing the fight to the Taliban in Afghanistan.
God Bless our troops and those from other countries fighting for the cause of Freedom.
