Sry for your cousin but your wrong. They still volunteered.<quoted text>Disagree, I have a relative who was getting ready to get out of the Corps and was frozen by orders of Bush, then was deployed to the invasion of Iraq.
Remember the whiners of the 1st conflict whined, cried & moaned on TV that enlisted for the education benefits, NOT combat. They were obviously in error.
Unless the recruiter lied, EVERYONE signs papers explaining their obligations. Mine was the same, 2 years of recall/inactive reserves. A fact that I volunteered for, so did your cousin in some way or form.
