News for the Enlisted Monday August 25, 2014
It has been a quiet time for official Washington. But the U.S. military has been busy in different corners of the world. In Iraq U.S. Airstrikes supported the retaking of the Mosul Dam by Kurdish and Iraqi troops from the ISIS. But an earlier secret raid was unable to save American journalist from being murdered by the ISIS in a monstrous act. Meanwhile the Missouri National Guard was sent to Ferguson to try and bring back order and have now been withdrawn after succeeding. (At least as of when this Update was written.). It has been quite a week.
