    Don\'t forget the invisible protectors....

    Everytime a new hotspot pops up in the media like Iraq is at the moment all the other hostile places our troops are stationed all over the globe almost seem forgotten.

    We've got people in several places that people just don't seem to think about unless someone you know is over there. A few examples

    Korea... We've been over there for about 50 years. 1 year at a time for our soldiers without their families.
    Kuwait.. Getting attention lately but has been patrolling since the first gulf war
    Bosnia.. Been keeping peace in the Balkans for about 10 years
    Kosovo.. Trying to stabalize the region for about 3 years
    Afganistan.. We're still hunting for Bin Laden and his cronies.
    and there are several other smaller groups scattered all over the world in hot spots.


    When I got back from 9 months in Bosnia back in 2000 several people I talked to back home didn't even realize we still had troops over there. /forums/images/graemlins/frown.gif

    It's amazing how quickly people forget once the media spotlight is gone. So when you say your prayers at night for all the troops risking thier lives protecting not only our way of life but also trying to protect the world, don't forget all the invisible protectors out there that you just can't see on tv anymore.
