From General Lynch: Today the Secretary of Defense and the Secretary of the Army announced that active component Army units will now have standard deployments of 15 months.
Fortunately(?) I have been preparing for Rob to be gone for 18 months, so IF he is gone 15, it’s better. I feel bad for all the families who have soldiers over there expecting a 12 month deployment, as those are being extended to 15 months. I believe in what he is doing, but having him gone that long is just hard!
