Tears and Outrage from Military Deaths

(La Porte, IN) - Flags were flying at half-staff at La Porte County government buildings due to U.S military casualties in Afghanistan yesterday.


La Porte County Commission President Rich Mrozinski ordered the flags lowered. Mrozinski, who saw combat duty in the Vietnam War, is upset over the approach taken in withdrawing U.S. troops from the country. The servicemen died, and more were injured in car bomb explosions from terrorists in Kabul. 


“It made me very sad, of course. On the other hand, I kind of feared that all along.  This withdrawal procedure is flawed at best,” he said.

Commissioner Mrozinski also feels more U.S. troops will die at the hands of terrorists before the U.S. gets out of the country because of the president’s approach to the situation.


“They’re not afraid of Joe Biden at all. I’m not an alarmist but I predict you’re going to see more of this,” he said.

Mrozinski, who called the president unqualified as commander-in-chief, should let the military decide the strategy in Afghanistan.
