After that Chinook helicopter was shot down in Afghanistan, killing 38 people (yes, 30 of them Americans, but Brian Williams would you please say 38, not 30, those Afghans, including an interpreter, were killed because of us) Daniel Zwerdling of NPR went to the naval museum in Hampton Roads, Virginia, and spoke to Navy enthusiasts (at minute 3:30 or so):
Here's the astonishing thing. Out of the 10 people I've talked to in the last hour, every single one of them said those men in Afghanistan are heroes, and-- it is time to bring all the troops home. One person after another, the elderly, young people, men, women, they all said-- this is not a war the United States is winning, we have not accomplished our goals, and it's time to get out. And I just talked to one woman whose husband is in the service, and she said, we are just simply losing too many wonderful young men and women who are wasting their lives over there.
