FILE - In this Wednesday Aug. 1, 2012 file photo, Casualty Affairs officer Capt. Miles Wilhelm comforts Tracy M. Hicks during the interment of her son Cpl. Darrion Terrell Hicks at Raleigh National Cemetery in Raleigh, N.C. Hicks died from injuries sustained from an improvised explosive device in Ghazni, Afghanistan, July 19, 2012. Eleven years after the U.S. began battling to rid Afghanistan of al-Qaida and the Taliban, the war has ebbed from the headlines. The question of just how to end it is barely mentioned in the speeches of this year's presidential campaign. Polls find most Americans just want it over. (AP Photo/The News & Observer, Chuck Liddy)
