  • Some navy guys are being deployed to the horn of Africa. My husband was supposed to go to Iraq but the orders have been canceled. He will be going to Afghan next year along with a marine battalion.

  • I don't think anyone knows what is going on.

  • My dh just got back. they are beefing up the numbers over there, but still doing the same time in between rotations, just sending more each rotation(which is 15 months for Nat'l Guard, 13 months for reserves, and 10-12 months for Regular Army)
    As for the other branches, I have no idea. I don't follow them too much.

  • You will have to watch the news for such reports.
    NO ONE (military members, their spouses, their children, the commands, anyone) is allowed to reveal information on deployment activity if they have inside information.
    OPSEC regulates that anyone who has knowledge of precise deployment activity is bound to the security regulations set forth by the government, especially on the internet.
    Please take heed and do not reveal info you know!
