    My little bro (still in AIT, MP school for ANG) just found out his unit is probably getting deployed to Basra soon in 2009. He wants to know how the FOBs in the area are - do they get fucked up? Anybody been to Basra and know? He's texting me right now so if you have any idea I'll relay it to my bro (he's jabbermewmew on here)...

    a little piece of free advice, if he is still in MOS school then he should worry about that.

    Rumors are a waste of time

    Whoever told him hes going to Basra probably doesnt know what theyre talking about. They wouldnt tell them this early where in iraq theyll be going.

    Good, I'm glad.

    We get the newsletters from his unit in the mail, and they said he's going to be deployed but they don't mentioned were. He'll be in the 32nd MP battalion.

    if his unit deploys, where his unit is going will be classified. They will not send something in the mail about the specific location of where the unit will be going
