The DoD budget, deployments, and you

Just so we are all in the know, with over a trillion dollars cut from the DoD budget, deployments are projected to extend to up to 15 months.

So, if you have anyone headed to Afghanistan this year, you're probably f**ked.

I don't care if they extend my dh. But, it will kill me if my boy deploys and is gone for that long. But, he is AF, so I'm not that worried about him.

Oh wow. I wonder if the USMC will have longer deployments as well. Dh is going to a unit that will be deploying and he is so happy about it. I wonder if he will feel differently if it is a much longer deployment.

I hope not - I couldn't handle it if one of my boys deployed.

I'm actually hoping they put a hold on all long distance transfer orders, for selfish reasons of course. I don't want to move.
