(KCEN) -- In the upcoming weeks, a decision about how many troops will remain in Afghanistan to help with security training will be made.
The U.S. combat mission in Afghanistan is set to end in 2014.
But not every troop will be coming home.
Defense Secretary Leon Panetta told reporters yesterday that the administration is still working out some post-pullout details.
The troops staying behind will also help conduct a counter terrorism mission against Al Qaeda.
Right now, about 67,000 U.S. troops are still overseas.
