I just found out today about this when i read a newsletter from my FRG, President Bush just announced his decision to return to a 12 month deployments for all active Army Units but this does not apply to those soldiers deploying prior to August 1, 2008; those units will complete their scheduled 15 month deployment, that includes my husband and his unit. well lucky them and sorry for us, those additional 3 months is another torture for the family of those deployed Army soldiers.
It is very unfair for us, Marines only has 7 months deployment as well as the Navy.
Army families are more stressful than any other.
I hope and pray that time flies and my husband can come home safe.
