More than 15 years into the Global War on Terrorism, the U.S. president signed a bill approving the construction of a national memorial honoring those who have fought and died in Iraq and Afghanistan since 2001 – and those doing so today.
President Donald Trump signed the bill at Camp David, Md., on Friday, where he held weekend meetings with national security leadership to discuss the latest strategy in Afghanistan. He was flanked by his National Security team, and White House Chief of Staff Marine Gen. John Kelly, who commanded troops in Iraq and lost a son in Afghanistan.
