Since President Bush officially declared the end to the war on Iraq on May 1, 2003, thousands of American soldiers are still fighting on this Veterans Day to protect American freedoms and establish democracy for the Iraqi people. Close to 400 soldiers have given their lives in the war, 38 of them died in November alone, and some local veterans say unfortunately the sacrifices are far from over. "We need to keep them in our prayers and give them all the support that we can because it looks like its gonna be a long drawn out process," says Veteran Arthur Miller. According to military personnel, the number of daily engagements between U.S. troops and the guerrillas has escalated in the last 2 months. World War II Veteran Joseph Boswell says his heart goes out to those in battle. "Well, its a bad situation for those young men, theyve had the training, but they have so many things to deal with and they just dont really know how to do it," says Boswell. But others say theyd rather have American troops fighting in Iraq than allow terrorists to repeat the tragic events of September 11th. "Its too late to slow down now, we spent too much money and made promises, including to the United Nations, we need to see this thing through," says Miller.
