Not to say that our men and women over there aren't proud of what they're doing or they're doing this against their will--but I'm sure there's more than a few soldiers who would *really* much rather be home.
That's one of the big reasons why I'll always have the utmost respect for our military. I may (and often do) disagree with the policies they're enacting and the way they're doing things. But a soldier's job isn't to make policy or question orders. And they're risking and losing their lives to follow those policies and orders. And they can't go home and call it a day until they're told to go home and call it a day. And they could be called right back at a moment's notice.
Yeah, lots of respect for those guys and gals. Also a lot of the reason why there's no way in hell I'd sign up for military service.
