Bush Responds to Soldier Needs — 18 Instead of 15 Day Leaves

Critics often complain President Bush is not doing enough for our fighting men and women. Well, today, the Pentagon announced that anyone who has been deployed for 15 months in combat in Iraq will be given 18 days of leave upon returning home instead of 15 days. I suspect most of those deployed would give up any leave time if they could simply leave Iraq permanently.
