  • They don't all go at once. Its rotational at different bases. troops are going to and returning from afghanistan daily.

  • Just mail me, Ill tell you when my hubby is going. Your not really supposed to like post it for everyone to see. I dont know why I mean the news will tell you, but right now the news doesnt know yet.

  • They are there now with more going over.

  • The reason you aren't supposed to post it is because actually the news speculates, and sometimes they're right and sometimes they aren't, and also because a lot of the times, the families know before the news does. By the time the news is told, the risk to the troops has been reduced. (I know this not just because I was in, or because my dh is still in, but because of the nature of the job he does, and what I used to do...)

    But aside from that, as one of the pp's said, there are troops coming and going from there all the time - we've had troops there literally for yrs now, and, frankly, I don't think that's going to end anytime soon.

  • had a bunch deploy end of oct into the bed of nov, and many more to continue to go... they don't ALL go at once. my sis (3rd deployment) redeployed in the beginning of nov. my cousin is due to ship out again ( 4th deployment) in the end of Dec. he may or may not be here for xmas. gotta love how they change your dates, and they never know for sure when they go. my sis had 21 days taken from her leave so she could ship early- lost 21 days with her 3 year old son... *sigh*
