Think you're too old to be sent to Iraq? Think again!
(All I can say is I'm SO GLAD I was never in the "service", cause the service never ends!)
Many thanks to Tom Tomorrow's site for turning me on to these articles:
This woman is 43 years old and is being sent over for 18 months!
This one's being sent to Iraq or Afghanistan and she's over 50!
This guy was discharged honorably and is now being called up again because the Army has decided he was a "deserter".
These people aren't being drafted. It's perfectly legal for the service to call you up after your out and it's perfectly political for the (burning) Bush administration not to institute a draft.
Is your oil cheap enough, yet?
