The troops are home from Iraq, and once again, Colbert strikes the perfect note to welcome them home. I’m excited that so many are coming home or back from Iraq. I’ve been fortunate enough to avoid deployments over Christmas – most of mine have been over the summer. With that said and while we celebrate the withdrawal from Iraq – 130,000 still in Afghanistan, with thousands more deployed on ships and bases overseas.
They won’t be home this Christmas.
