Is it fair to increase the length and frequency of the tours of duty for people already serving in the Army Reserves?
Asked at Checkers, 2300 La. on January 9, 2005
“I don’t think so. I think the war was a mistake and the people serving in the Reserves shouldn’t have to pay for George Bush’s mistake.”
“I don’t think it is. They were told that they would be there for a certain period of time. I think that the government should honor that agreement. Actually, I really don’t believe in the war in the first place.”
“I don’t think it is fair for them to increase it, but they could give soldiers the choice to serve longer tours of duty.”
“I don’t think it’s fair, and I don’t think it’s wise. We are overextended as it is, especially with the reservists. I don’t think they signed on for that.”
