Just noticed that President Obama made a surprise visit to the Bagram Air Base in Afghanistan. He is speaking to a large assembly of troops from the various services represented there in country. A friend of mine from college is serving as a leader at that very large base on the other side of the world.
Do you think we will ever see a time when American forces are not serving on foreign soil in the near future? That almost doesn’t seem possible since the buildup of our military around the world following World War II. I believe a flash point of conflict in the near future will be in or near the country of Israel, a key area in the Middle East. Time will tell what will happen there.
