Congresswoman Cheri Bustos talked about the coming withdrawal of Afghanistan troops while in the QC, just before she returns to work in D.C.

"As i go back to Washington, I'll be casting votes that fund the war in Afghanistan and will also fund that draw down and I'll have to see what we need to do going forth," she said.

Bustos was presenting an American flag to elementary students in Andalusia, a flag that was recently flown in a fighter jet in Afghanistan. Bustos was there herself over mothers day, delivering Mother's Day cards made by Andalusia 4th graders to the service women there.

She said the cards made a big impression on the moms she met.

"Every single student in that fourth grade class made these heart-felt beautiful cards that we gave out one-by-one to the women serving in Afghanistan and who hadn't received mail themselves, from their own children at that point," she said. "So it was a very emotional and touching gesture on the part of the fourth graders here at Andalusia Elementary School."

The flag she presented to the kids was flown by the Air National Guard in Afghanistan.
