Headlines are everywhere - 5th year "Anniversary" of the war in Iraq was last week. This week it is US Military death toll is 4,000: http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/23771735/ 4,000 soldiers and sailors have given the Ultimate Sacrifice. They have left behind grieving mothers, fathers, wives, husbands, children and lovers. Countless others have deployed multiple times putting on hold the best years of their lives and the lives of those who love them: http://www.militarytimes.com/blogs/talesfromthesandbox/vemmer/2008/03/20/five-down/ From an Army Wife: As much as our soldiers and sailors have given to us and to their country - we tend to forget how much their significant others have given and they very personal sacrifices they have made. And we wonder why we can't meet recruiting goals and why young officers are choosing to leave the military when their committment is up.
