How College and Young Republicans 'Support' Our Troops!
Well, it seems that our Army is finally making itself evolve, the better to address its mission. Here's why:
The prospect of combat in Iraq for at least another four years is prompting the Army to realign its forces to prevent a small slice of soldiers who are shouldering much of the fighting from wearing out.
Pentagon records show one-fifth of the Army's active-duty troops have served multiple tours of war duty while more than 40% haven't been deployed to Iraq or Afghanistan.
. . .
Fort Bragg in North Carolina, where many Special Forces soldiers are based, is home to the Army's most-deployed soldier. That soldier, whom the Army declined to identify, has been sent to Iraq or Afghanistan nine times.
Isn't that enough for one real American patriot? At least for a while? Can't he have, say, a year home with his family and/or friends?
Come on, College and Young Republicans, let's see you Support Our Troop! That's right: Give this guy a break!
