What about those children of the single mothers

When I read this aricle from Truthout today, I thought about those children of the 16,000 single mothers. How do they eat? Who takes care of them?

FOCUS | 16,000 Single Mothers Serving in Iraq
When war started in Iraq, a generation of US women became involved as never before - in a wider-than-ever array of jobs, for long deployments, in a conflict with daily bloodshed. More than 155,000 women have served in Iraq and Afghanistan. Among their ranks are more than 16,000 single mothers, according to the Pentagon, a number that military experts say is unprecedented.

This war in Iraq was started for the wrong reasons. No weapon of mass destruction were found. Iraq had nothing to do with 911. We all know this now and still the killing and destruction is continuing today.

Raise your voice. Talk to your congressman/woman.
Giving up and keeping silent is supporting the war, don’t you know?
