Do you have loved ones in Afghanistan?

The Associated Press reports that a major military push is currently underway there.

WASHINGTON (AP) -- U.S. Marines and Afghan security forces moved into Taliban-infested villages Wednesday evening in one of the Obama administration's first major military operations in the previously forgotten war in Afghanistan.

The offensive was launched shortly after 1 a.m. local time in Afghanistan's southern Helmand province. More than 4,000 Marines and an estimated 650 Afghan soldiers and police sought to clear insurgents from towns and villages along the Helmand River Valley before the nation's Aug. 20 presidential election.

  • I do not currently. My hubby was deployed there 2 years ago, and will likely be again within the next year. My prayers are with all the troops in Iraq/Afghanistan and other war-torn countries.
