The Field of Flags are at rest for the winter, but be reminded that the fighting and dying continue in Afghanistan.
There have been 13 more U.S. casualties in Afghanistan since Jan. 13 as reported by the Defense Department. The total of fallen heroes in Iraq and Afghanistan stands at 6,363 as of Jan. 27.
Each of these 13 people represents another person missing from 13 groups of friends and 13 families. May we continue to keep all of those who mourn in our prayers and conversations.
