Adm. Mike Mullen, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, told a gathering Sunday that the nation must appreciate the sacrifices its troops are making in Afghanistan and Iraq. “These years of battle have steeled them for an uncertain future, because when our men and women come home, the battle doesn’t end,” Mullen said. “Quite frankly, for many it’s just the beginning,” In related news, a short time later the Pentagon issued a statement hailing the Army’s decision to recognize November as National Depression Awareness Month.
