Yahoo! News - Army Extends Tours Despite 1-Year Pledge: "WASHINGTON - About 21,000 American soldiers in Iraq (news - web sites) who were to return this month to their home bases in Louisiana and Germany will have their tours extended at least three months to help combat the surge in anti-occupation violence, defense officials said Wednesday. "
Not just Louisiana and Germany. My cousin is based out of Illinois. Her unit was already in Kuwait waiting to get on the flight back home when they got orders to turn around and go back to Iraq. They're not at all happy about it, as you can imagine, they were all psyched up for reunions with family and friends back home after a long deployment.
Now they're being extended back into Iraq for an undetermined period of time.
