Pic of the Day: We are still at war in Afghanistan

US Army

A photograph provided by the Pentagon reveals that, indeed, the United States is still at war on the Asian continent. 

In photograph taken by Army Staff Sgt. Andrew Guffey of the 210th MPAD, Lt. Patrick Hendrickson is seen taking cover in a wheat field resplendent with yellow blossoms. Lt Hendrickson was leading the 1st Platoon, Company A, 1st Battalion, 168th Infantry Regiment, 34th Infantry Division,  of the Iowa National Guard as his unit was preparing to move into a village known as Ruwqueiean. The photograph was taken on June 9.

According to AntiWar.com, US military deaths now total 4,463 since the conflict began in March 2003. Combat deaths have amounted to 3520. Of these, 235 died since President Barack Obama took office in 2009.  The toll of wounded is officially 33,072, but AntiWar.com calculates that the actual number may be as much as three times higher.
