Next round of Afghanistan deployments announced

bildeIn other news: the United States is still mired in an undeclared war in the Middle East.  Not that you would have any idea from the mainstream media that this is the case.  This is not an insignificant number of soldiers to get deployed.  What are we doing over there still?  I forget…

From the article:

Almost 9,000 soldiers will deploy to Afghanistan this winter, the Defense Department announced Tuesday.

The deploying soldiers represent six major Army units, including a corps headquarters, a division headquarters, three brigade combat teams and a combat aviation brigade.

The BCTs will go as Security Force Assistance Brigades, which are smaller, tailored units designed to train, advise and assist the Afghan National Security Forces.
