Title: The last casualties: As a long war ends, risks still prove real
Also in the House chamber that night was Rep. Adam Kinzinger, R-Ill., a former Air Force pilot who flew intelligence and medevac missions in Iraq and Afghanistan.
"I think there is a sense in the military that Americans are not paying attention anymore," he had told a reporter a few weeks earlier, shortly after returning from a visit to Kabul. "I think they're right, to be honest. There is a sense that it's over, but it's not."
There are currently roughly 33,700 U.S. troops in Afghanistan.
Medical professionals say the combat evacuation system that sprang up at the height of the Iraq war to care for the wounded is being pared down. In December, Bagram became the only base in Afghanistan with a top-tier trauma center, which means that patients across the battlefield in need of specialized care face longer journeys. As the footprint becomes smaller in coming months, the margin of error will widen, said Lt. Col. Mary Danko, the chief Air Force flight nurse in Bagram.
We typically hook up a Zebra LP 2844 thermal printer (could use one of those as well), mouse, and sometimes a larger keyboard through USB ports. So three USB ports would be nice. Wireless capability and at least a small hard drive is needed. It doesn't have to be fancy to handle our online postage software. We have a volunteer that works as a bank security tech that can properly wipe your hard drive info, if needed.
If you, or your company, have updated to newer computers, we could certainly put your old laptop to good use. We are located in the Dallas, Texas area, with donated warehouse space in Irving. We are an all-volunteer 501(c)(3) charity, and your donation would be tax deductible. We can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org
Their kids donated a huge number of beautifully hand decorated patriotic frisbees (4 shown in photo). And a large quantity of foiled tuna packs along with cash donations for postage were received for our care packages for troops in Afghanistan. A big thanks to Denise in Cleveland for coordinating the Tuna Fish Friday events.
Finley & Co., LPA and Retail Maintenance plan on continuing to support our care package efforts in the future, and we thank them greatly for their support of our U.S. troops overseas.
