Afghan war dead

With 2,300 U.S. troop deaths over the dozen years of the war in Afghanistan, public dismay over the faraway battle now matches the height of U.S. opposition to the war in Iraq, an ABC News/Washington Post poll disclosed Friday. In this photo from Arlington National Cemetery on Veteran's Day last month, Kathy Sheehy weeps in front of the gravestone of her son, Lt. Matthew Klopfer, a naval aviator who died in June 2012.
