    What a beautiful sight to wake up to this morning. Our men and women are finally coming home. I do hope they are going to be given honors,work, and compensation to take care of their families when they return. We need to take care of our veterans.

    President Obama has remained true to his promise to get them out of Iraq; and I know he will continue to honor and work for our veterans at home. He needs the participation and support of the ENTIRE CONGRESS!!!!!!!!!

    KHABARI CROSSING, Kuwait — The last U.S. soldiers rolled out of Iraq across the border to neighboring Kuwait at daybreak Sunday, whooping, fist bumping and hugging each other in a burst of joy and relief. Their exit marked the end of a bitterly divisive war that raged for nearly nine years and left Iraq shattered, with troubling questions lingering over whether the Arab nation will remain a steadfast U.S. ally.

      • US soldiers celebrate as the first vehicles of the last US military convoy carrying troops out of Iraq passes through the K-Crossing at Iraq’s border with Kuwait on December 18, 2011. From the tens of thousands killed and wounded to the hundreds of billions of dollars spent in eight years of conflict, the cost of the Iraq war is astronomic and still growing.
