WOOHOO!

Say. Anybody remember this other little spat going on?:
Afghans say over 60 Taliban dead in fierce fighting:

"Afghan and U.S. troops backed by warplanes have killed more than 60 Taliban guerrillas in southwestern Afghanistan in the bloodiest fighting in months, officials said on Wednesday.

Afghan officials said eight members of the Afghan security forces had also died in the fighting in the north of Kandahar province to suppress a surge in guerrilla violence in the run-up to Sept. 18 parliamentary elections.

The U.S. military said earlier its initial estimates were of 40 guerrilla dead, but spokeswoman Lieutenant Cindy Moore said this figure could rise as more reports from the field came in.

She said five U.S. troops had been wounded."
[emphasis mine]
In case you forgot, we still have a lot of troops in Afghanistan. And apparently, they're still doing their job over there.

A big pat on the back from me.

We haven't forgotten. Over three deployments I've "adopted" 3 soldiers, a Marine and an entire AF unit. God Bless Them All.
