U.S. troop levels in Iraq may increase again in 2016

A large portion of the care packages of the Airborne Angel Cadets of Texas are currently being sent to U.S. Soldiers, Sailors, Airmen and Marines in Iraq, where toiletries, foods, snacks and other care package items are often in short supply.  Though the 'temporary' troop numbers are unknown, it appears there are about 6,000 American troops in Iraq ... and many thousands more in neighoring countries that are providing support.  Our all-volunteer nonprofit welcomes the support of anyone who wishes to help us send care packages to our troops overseas.

Fox News article (9/22/16)"Pentagon wants 500 more US troops for Iraq amid new attacks"

If President Obama signs off on the military’s plan for more troops, the number would rise above 5,000. There are other U.S. troops inside Iraq that the Pentagon claims are on “temporary” assignments, though some of these deployments last up to one year in country. Counting these troops, the new forces going to Iraq will push the unofficial number of American forces on the ground in Iraq to over 6,000 troops.

In addition to a rocket attack suspected of containing a “mustard agent” earlier this week, nearly 500 U.S. troops at a base 25 miles south of Mosul have been attacked four times in the past week in conventional rocket attacks, Fox News is told.
