Do you remember when American troops first entered Afghanistan?
Most people surely don’t.
Many people do not seem to realize we still are there.
But American casualties still are occurring.
U.S. forces first entered Afghanistan on Oct. 7, 2001.
Why? Most people don’t even remember.
We moved our troops into Afghanistan because of the attack by terrorists on the World Trade Center in New York City on Sept. 11, 2001.
The purpose was to hunt down Osama bin Laden, who was blamed for the attack on New York.
But the United States, the American people, the soldiers and airmen — we as a nation — still are engaged, most unfortunately, in Afghanistan.
No end is in sight.
In fact, United States military forces reportedly now are preparing a new offensive in Afghanistan — a last major American offensive in Afghanistan.
Who knows when Americans finally be will be out — and what then?
