Living near several military installations, we hear regular reports of fallen soldiers coming home to be laid to rest. As these reports seemed to be on the rise, it seemed appropriate to do research to see if the news reports we are hearing about the War on Terror winding down were accurate.

In fact EVERY year of his presidency shows at least twice the numbers of soldiers being killed than in the highest fatality year previous to his election, including 2012 which still has two and a half months left.

War is hell no doubt. But it is even more hellish when our Commander-in-Chief is parading around the world apologizing for our very existence while abroad and making the talk show tour while at home.
