Written by Joe Pitts
Mayor of Clarksville

City of ClarksvilleClarksville, TN – As we prepare to observe a solemn Memorial Day, I’m mindful that this is the 20th year our country has been at war in Afghanistan, longer than any other American conflict.

Now, with an announced end to the deployment to Afghanistan, we remember that about 2.7 million Americans have served this century in Iraq and Afghanistan — many of them from Fort Campbell — and more than half of them deployed more than once.

Marsha Blackburn Report: Supporting Military Families

 

U.S. SenateWashington, D.C. – The United States Armed Forces are made up of not only brave men and women in uniform, but also the families at home who support them during their service.
