Over 3,000 new US troops headed to Afghanistan - Pentagon

Over 3,000 new US troops headed to Afghanistan - Pentagon | 18 Sept 2017 | US Defense Secretary James Mattis confirmed that over 3,000 new US troops will be headed to Afghanistan as part of President Donald Trump’s new strategy to win the war that has dragged on for almost 16 years. "It is exactly over 3,000 somewhat and frankly I haven't signed the last of the orders right now as we look at specific, small elements that are going," Mattis told reporters on Monday afternoon. Earlier in the day, Senator David Perdue (R-Georgia) referred to "3,500 more troops" in an article published by Defense One.
