KERRVILLE, Texas – The 1,000th American serviceman killed in Afghanistan had already fallen once to a hidden explosive, driving his Humvee over a bomb in Iraq in 2007. The blast punched the dashboard radio into his face and broke his leg in two places.
Marine Cpl. Jacob C. Leicht didn't survive his second encounter with a bomb this week. The death of the 24-year-old Texan born on the Fourth of July marks a grim milestone in the Afghanistan war.
Leicht, who spent two painful years recovering from the Iraq blast, was killed Thursday when he stepped on a land mine in Helmand province that ripped off his right arm.
So sad. What is the possibility of us winning, or just withdrawing from Afghan war? When will our troops come home?

If the libs would have let the military do it's job and quit tying them up with all this feel good crap they could have been out of there a long time ago.
After all we won a world war in just 4 years.
To put it into a little perspective though, we lost 1000 troops in 6 years, we lost 400,000 American troops in W. W. ll in 4 years. But losing just one is sad and tragic, that's why we honor them tomorrow.
