Election day was business as usual for US soldiers on the front lines in Iraq and Afghanistan as they awaited the results of Tuesday's presidential contest that will influence the course of the wars.

For thousands of soldiers, Tuesday was spent on patrol, guarding strategic installations, repairing equipment and other mundane tasks of war. "We can't stop doing what we have to do.
