A Draft of Former Soldiers

What is a ready reservist? Unbeknownst to me, the military "owns" enlistees for 8 years. Anyone who finishes their 3 year term of enlistment still owes Uncle Sam 5 more years.

Over 100,000 ready reservists were recently called up and ordered to report to Guard and Reserve units. It seems that Rumsfeld and others were wrong. We did need more soldiers in order to invade and occupy Iraq.

So all those poor slobs who joined the service to earn money for college have been pulled out of classes. Read all about it here and here.
