Good news to be sure and I hope we can do it every month until all our troops are safe at home.

Yes, that is good news, the bad news is that our troops have been in Iraq,and Afghanistan,to begin with getting bombed or shot at, in Mr. Bush's wars!

So true Mitchell D..it's amazing what our Politicians think is good news...to me withdrawing all troops/navy etc back home would be good news..all countries staying within their own borders would be good news..no deaths is good news..but that doesn't mean no damage..to the human body or mind. Yes the "World is not at Peace" I know that..but do they?.

Zero is great. Too bad that April cannot make the same claim as 4 soldiers (including the gunman) were killed at Fort Hood Texas. About 9 others wounded.

Excellent news. Now I can hardly wait for the day when they tell us "that there are no soldiers in Combat, that they have all returned safely home". But sorry to say that this evenings news, said we are already sending some troops to the area where tensions are rising close to Russia. I pray for an end to this now. Thanks Cal

This is good news for both our countries Far too many young men have been lost in these mindless wars .Enough women have been left with broken hearts and left to live lonely lives and too many children have been deprived of a father.

This is welcome news but it is a great pity that so many soldiers lost their lives fighting in a futile war which had nothing to do with them. Those politicians who advocate war should be the ones first to don the uniform.
