The Yahoo News Headline reads on Sunday, September 5, 2010: Despite formal combat end, US joins Baghdad battle
The money quote comes from a commenter below named Java. Java writes, "Love that headline ..... I guess we are now in the 'informal' part of the combat since the 'formal' part is over." That is *exactly* what I was thinking. "Formal" combat ends and we are now initiating "Casual Friday" combat... except... not really. Word from military families I know, it is just as dangerous, if not even more so now. My thoughts and prayers are with the soldiers and their families.
