    My son is in Afghanistan and I watch CNN for updates. One good thing has happened and I can not find it anywhere with CNN Mark Wahlburg visited the troops this past weekend. That was a wonderful thing for him to do. My son really appreciated it and said he was a great guy... I want him to know how wonderful I think that was for him to do that. Why has CNN not said anything about this?
