    to get fucking deployed?! :ugh2:

    I've been on the volunteer list for months. I'm deployable. What. The. Fuck. :madfawk:



    wonder if the nuclear option (calling my congressman) is worth it in this case? :noes:

    Join a Guard or Reserve unit? I hear they're deploying like hotcakes! Seriously, the Reserve Engineer unit around here went to Bosnia et al, Iraq, Kuwait, Iraq. Lots of time overseas for those guys.

    Then again, if you're already in a NG/R outfit that's going nowhere, maybe there's something deeper at work. Someone lose your paperwork, maybe?

    I moved from the Reserves to the NG so that I could keep my combat arms MOS. That's secure now, but still no phone call or notification for any kind of deployment.

    Maybe. I'll dig deeper this weekend when we drill. :mad:

    :mamoru: We pretty much act like 11B's but instead of pointing at weapons caches and running away, we dig them up and blow 'em up. :naughty:

    Yeah. My son was working with a Guard unit going on joint combat patrols and raids with Iraqi MOI forces in Samarrah out of a patrol base. When that ended after 4 months and he had to go back to the FOB, he was stunned to see guys in his platoon that had never left the wire. :rolleyes:

    most of the reserve combat engineer units have either just come back or are currently deployed. If you are near PA, there is a battalion that will be deployed in the next year. i think there may be a few slots in my unit but i would have to check the UMR.
