Our brave men and women have been serving in Afghanistan for nearly 18 years. Millions answered the call to serve in the military after the devastating events of Sept. 11, 2001.
But our servicemembers have sacrificed in Afghanistan for far too long. And soon, recruits being sent to fight in Afghanistan may not have even been born when 9/11 occurred.
The military has already accomplished its original objectives in Afghanistan – punish the Taliban, decimate al-Qaida and kill Osama bin Laden. Continuing to deploy troops to Afghanistan does not serve a legitimate national interest. It just puts our troops in unnecessary danger.
It’s time to bring our brave men and women home from a war that has long been over.
Tell your lawmaker to support withdrawing troops from Afghanistan!
