This iReport is part of an assignment:
Did Obama say "Troops were Coming Home"?
- jmsaba, CNN iReport producer
On May 4, 2012 a group of soldiers left Kingsford, Michigan to meet up with another Michigan unit before heading to Afghanistan for a 1 year deployment. This was DAYS after I heard Obama say he was bringing them home. It is a hard idea to grasp when I see these soldiers heading over there this week for the next year.
How many more soldiers must we send BEFORE bringing them all home safe and sound. This group is all Michigan National Guard, the 1432 Engineer Company. I also wonder why we are depending on our National Guard when it is our military's job? Our National Guard SHOULD be protecting this country while our military troops are away.. Our National Guard should be protecting our borders and capitals, not over-seas..
