Did you know: Cost of war

Our war in Afghanistan, in its 19th year, rages on, and this month ended the life of Marine Cpl. Robert A. Hendriks of Locust Valley, N.Y., whose mother said she “feels broken into a million pieces.” More than 2,300 U.S. service members have died in the conflict, 13 last year and seven this year. The United States once had 100,000 service members there, but now has fewer than 14,000. — Newsday
