Whether or not people are in support of the war, one wartime aspect is usually agreed upon: support our troops.

For most people, the troops are a far-off entity who are “protecting our homeland” and “fighting for freedom.”

This is not the case for two students at the College, Alison Litvack and Jen Nemmers. […]
