Obama knows every service deployed in Afghanistan, and he writes personal letters to families that have lost a member of the military in combat. Afghanistan really has no coast line and naval type operations are not what they are doing in Afghanistan,. They are but a small detachment.
On August 4, 2010, the Coast Guard celebrated its 220th birthday, the same date that President Barack Obama chose to celebrate his 49th birthday.
By the way, there have been more killed in Afghanistan from the French Foreign Legion than from the Coast Guard, who has had not one KIA in Afghanistan.
The Coast Guard Augments the US Army and "Chief Petty Officer Daniel Kinville and Petty Officer 2nd Class Lauren Kowalewski are part of an eight-person unit from the Coast Guard's 1179th Deployment Support Brigade, and are the only two Coast Guard personnel in Afghanistan."
So they have 8 people in Afghanistan SENT THERE by President Obama.
So you can stop your disinformation any time.
So there are 2. I would not call them fightiing or dying. With that small of number I might have forgotten them as well, as you probably would have it if you did not have a vested interest.
If I were currently still in the Army and someone told me that 2 from the CG were in Afghanistan attached to the Army I probably would have laughed myself to death! So what is the big deal? You are trying to make a mountain out of a molehill, which is what Politico does when it isn't lying. You have to be kidding. This is the most lame-brain attack of Obama I have seen.
I am still waiting to see Jesus Christ's Birth Certificate though I am sure he was born!
