They were about to return home in a couple weeks after a years tour in Iraq but have been kept over in Bagdad for another three months. If anyone has morale booster suggestions this would be a good time to provide them.


The extension of the Stryker Brigade's service in Iraq means about 3,700 troops who had been planning to return home over the next two weeks probably will remain for at least the next six weeks and possibly as long as four months, this time in the nation's most violent area.

The extension boosts troop levels temporarily in Baghdad without sacrificing military power elsewhere in the country. The 3rd Brigade of the 2nd Infantry Division, also a Stryker brigade, is already in Iraq taking the 172nd's place.

Yup, just got an email from my sister that my nephew who got back in the states wensday with some others to prep things for the others would be heading back. I don't think Junior and Rummy are on her Christmas list any more.
