I agree, as a vet the matter of our troops hits home for me. I know what it is like to be away for so lo ng so often, it cost me a marriage( nobodys fault, we both just grew apart after a couple of years with little personal contact.) And a home. It is hard enough when your just out training for weeks at a time. A 18 month tour in Iraq or Afghanistan is a long time, and the transitin home from combat is not easy.
I just hope that Patreaus if picked will be the leader the troops need, not the pawn the presidential candidate wants.

I would think this would be more a meeting about a Sec Def or other Cabinet position. Petreaus would do nothing for the ticket. Romney neeps a GOP hard lined with solid GOP support to shore up the base because his own backgroud makes him a RINO.
