  1. Is it me or has the old 6 month tour suddenly expanded to a 7 or 8 month tour Telic 8 I finished in Nov was nearly 8 months and everyone taking over from us was the same 7 or 8 months. :frustrated:
    Is this a ploy to cut down on tours everyone does it doesnt take a rocket scientist to work out after 2 or so years they have covered an extra deployment for a Bde :pissedoff:
     
  2. Well thought out thereDog, the unit im with has not been deployed since 2003, and it looks as though it will be a few more years till we go any where.
     
  3. Where are you?thats on my next pref posting then lol
     
  4. This is what i have been thinking, they said Telic 8 was extended to come inline with Afgan however im suuposed to go to Afgan at the end of the year and it is going to be 7 to 8 months Strange hu. Dog when did you leave 1 LI i have a sneaky feeling we know each other!!
