The War in Afghanistan has been a very expensive and costly war. This war has not only just cost a lot of money, it has also cost lives. This was has not have been in our own territory so this means as Americans we have to send our finest over to fight this war. We have had to send our fathers, our brothers and sisters, and our mothers overseas in order to keep this war in our winning side. In our own town we have many people, which may even be your neighbor, being sent overseas in harms way. This may be a hard thing to think about but when you are sent overseas you are away from your home and your family for at least 4 months at a time. And that doesn't even include travel time. One woman, and mother, knows this feeling the best. Karen Steiner is about to go on her third tour for 6 months. She is the mother of two teenagers and is a loving wife. Her family doesn't want her to leave again but she has no choice in it. She knows that she is going to help many of men and women that haven been injured at war. Karen Steiner is a Flight Nurse for the Air Force Reserves. She is also the commander of the 911th Air Wing in Pittsburgh. Mrs. Steiner knows what she has to do into order to sever her country the right way. In her past tours to Iraq and Afghanistan she has saved countless lives.
