Those of us who have served remember the many who did not come back from our wars, and the many others who still suffer. When you talk with veterans and their families, ask what was actually gained by these sacrifices. We not only look back, but we must also look ahead… do we want to sacrifice more of our troops? For what? We need to consider the Costs of Warbefore going to war!
