A Veteran’s Thoughts on the Afghanistan Situation

Medal of Honor recipient Kyle Carpenter expresses some of his thoughts on the sad situation in Afghanistan.

This has been a difficult week, as the most evil and hateful scourge of any cult on earth has risen again. Shame on the disgraceful lying American politicians who betrayed the men, women, and children of Afghanistan, ripping from them the shield of hope and promise and leaving them for slaughter. On the eve of the 20th observance of the 9/11 Islamist attack on our nation, an inept American president has re-seeded al-Qaida’s terrorist turf — and let the world’s tyrants know they have nothing to fear from him.

I have talked with many Operation Enduring Freedom veterans this week, but these words from OEF Marine, Medal of Honor recipient Kyle Carpenter, rise well above the din. Of his message, Kyle notes: “I feel like I only got a fraction of my thoughts out but this situation and the sadness I feel will take time. If you are struggling, please know, you are not alone. Reach out, we’re all with you. Love & Semper Fidelis to my fellow veterans, service members, and the beautiful people of Afghanistan.”

Thank you Kyle and S/F…
