Troop Surge - Where Are They Coming From?

One thing that not a lot of people have been talking about lately when discussing Bush's troop "surge" (don't you just love that word? Much more confident than reinforcements). And that is, where are these new troops coming from? The US military is stretched pretty thin already, and there aren't a whole lot of places where troops are hiding.

And then we learned part of the answer. VERY persistent recruiting. A few days after Christmas, the families of 275 officers killed or wounded in action received the ultimate gift from the U.S. army. Letters urging those officers to return to active duty.

Yup, apparently the Army is so desperate for bodies that it actually going to dig them up.

Oh yeah, an Army spokesperson said it was an error and apologized to the families. Personally, I think they've got some Young Frankenstein action going on somewhere and this could be the key!

You can make book on whoever those new men and women are, none of them are kids of corporate America.
