Afghanistan Drawdown

Pete Springer/OPB

As expected, President Obama announced his plan for a troop drawdown in Afghanistan. Directing military policy in the country has been front and center ever since Obama took office. Think Out Loud has dealt with the state of affairs in Afghanistan in a number of shows over the last few years. Despite the drawdown, about 600 Northwest troops will be headed to Afghanistan in the coming days.

Have you or a family member been part of the military effort in Afghanistan? Did you hear what you hoped to from the President? What questions do you have about U.S. or NATO forces in Afghanistan? Are you concerned about an Afghanistan with fewer troops on the ground?
