Abigail Castro, 21 months, clings to her dad, Spc. Kory Castro, following his return to Fort Riley, Kan., October 21, 2011. Spc. Castro, assigned to 1st Battalion, 7th Field Artillery Regiment, 2nd Heavy Brigade Combat Team, was one of more than 250 1st Infantry Division Soldiers who returned from a 12 month deployment to Iraq as part of the Dagger brigade’s first “main body” flight. The remainder of the brigade’s 3,000 Soldiers will return to Fort Riley throughout the next several weeks. Photo by Mollie Miller, 1st Infantry Division Public Affairs.

FACT:

Mother Jones was founded as a nonprofit in 1976 because we knew corporations and the wealthy wouldn't fund the type of hard-hitting journalism we set out to do.

Today, reader support makes up about two-thirds of our budget, allows us to dig deep on stories that matter, and lets us keep our reporting free for everyone. If you value what you get from Mother Jones, please join us with a tax-deductible donation today so we can keep on doing the type of journalism 2020 demands.
