15 Reactions From American Soldiers To ISIS, U.S. Airstrikes In Iraq

The Pentagon said Monday that four days of U.S. airstrikes have slowed the progress of ISIS, but not broken the militant group’s stronghold in the Northern part of Iraq.

With President Obama not giving a definitive timetable on the operation in Iraq, American servicemen and women anonymously offer their thoughts on the U.S. operation in Iraq, ISIS, the prospect of boots on the ground, and how the recent activity in Iraq is affecting lingering PTSD symptoms.
