From Bill Stuart

By Staff | Jan 18, 2012

The Field of Flags are at rest for the winter, but be reminded that the fighting and dying continue in Afghanistan. May our conversations and prayers continue to include our servicemen, their families, and their friends.

There have been nine more U.S. casualties in Afghanistan since Jan. 6 as reported by the Defense Department. The total of fallen heroes in Iraq and Afghanistan stands at 6,350 as of Jan. 13.

There has been little news of these deaths, as the Defense Department seems to be concerned with the public uproar over the pictures of the mistreatment of enemy bodies in Afghanistan.
