Thanks for this post. Good to hear that more soldiers are coming back but don't you think that 4,000 according to 120,000 is anyway quite a small number? And nobody mentioned the war costs...Try to imagine that the annual support costs for soldiers in Iraq would pay the health insurance for each US citizen.
