I'm currently a Stay At Home Mom on the IRR list, crossing my fingers that I don't get called up. I'm sure we'd find a way to make it work, but I have to say I think the IRR is BS. Sure, we all know about it going in, and they emphasize it coming out, but really, what's the difference between a Draft and calling up IRR people? IRR people are already trained. Draftees would take longer to train and it looks worse to the general public when you call up completely un-patriotic people who have never served in the military, then to call up people who have already served multiple tours in Iraq or wherever, survived, and have chosen to move on with their lives...-... to move on with the lives they have EARNED the right to live under our constitution. Anyone saying this woman Lisa should have to go back better be currently serving or a veteran.

If you haven't served, you can't say anyone else should have to!

Well said Peggy, but we were definitely informed and signed the papers stating the particulars of our enlistment. As someone previously mentioned, ones word, even in writing, doesn't seem to be worth a damn these days...why is that. Possibly you should get into politics, then we would understand that promises can easily be broken. Just say what will get one elected and then do what you wish, as for the CHANGE.

OK you idiot, this is a country run by a civilian government you dolt. We have the say, not the military. You wanna live in a Banana Republic then move to Central America and let the Generalissimo dictate what happens in your "free country". You want the military in charge? You must be dumber than Dick Cheney.
