The continuing Iraq occupation somehow in and of itself represents supporting our troops. Yes, while they're there you fund and support them, but that doesn't mean you also cannot side with trying to get them out of a disastrous situation. To leave them there open-ended, forcing many to serve multiple tours, is not supporting the troops, it's more like exploiting them.

In fact, Vietnam vet Sen. Chuck Hagel sums up this sentiment when recently stating, "We essentially are ruining our National Guard. We are destroying our Army. We’re destroying our Marine Corps."
