Involuntary recall...War Vet, 50, Stunned By New Deployment
MURFREESBORO, Tenn. -- A veteran who has been out of the military for 15 years and recently received his AARP card was stunned when he received notice he will be deployed to Iraq.

The last time Paul Bandel, 50, saw combat was in the early 1990s during the Gulf War.

"(I was) kind of shocked, not understanding what I was getting into," said Bandel.


1993, Bandel took the option of leaving the Army without retirement and never thought he would be called back to action.

"Here he's 50 years old, getting his AARP card, and here he's being redeployed with all these 18-year-olds," said Paul's wife, Linda Bandel.

"I can understand, say, 'Here, we have this assignment for you stateside. Go do your training,'" said Paul Bandel. "But, 'Hey, here's a gun, go back to the desert.'"

Involuntary recall allows the military, regardless of age or how long someone has been out of service, to order vets back into active duty.

"Anger's not the word. I was more concerned about the financial impact it's going to do. My pay's probably cut in half," said Paul Bandel.

"Right now, I'm just in disbelief because it's like the disbelief that this could be happening 15 years after being out of the military. It's like a dream or a nightmare," said Linda Bandel.

Is it a "Back-Door Draft?"


The deployment of the Guard is why the liberals will start up the new DRAFT in 2009!

Besides that, why would they send him to Iraq, when they are going to remove military from there and send them to Afghanistan? It doesn't make sense to me.

Oh, no worries...it's just a matter of time. Nothing's changed. We aren't leaving Iraq (I guess he was teasing us). We're upping the ante in Afghanistan (must have been some sort of fuck-up over the pipeline deals), and Obama's all over that. No worries.

I was just thinking that. Once you sign up, do they own you for the rest of your life?

You would think they would give someone that old a job stateside so they could relieve younger soldiers to go over and do the fighting.

sorry to burst your daydream, bubble-brain, but like the Iraq, fiasco, the HUGE bailouts-the HUGE deficits and massive unemployment-job outsourcing, the murder of 2500 of our troops via trickery-all at the feet of BUSH and will be felt 10 years on-
you sound as if you dip into the 'Kool -Aid' a bit to often...

AND THE DRAFT?
BUSH has those plans all drawn up on his desk and ready to sign
Has had for a year, you moron. READ-or take a remedial reading class

He just happens to have a few distractions at the moment-like
WHO THE HECK DOES HE GIVE ANOTHER $100 BILLION IN BAILOUT MONEY TO, NEXT? [VIA OUR TAXES] what to do, what to do-such a long line forming
so little time to destroy the economy -like an evicted renter stripping an apartment of anything of value-before OBama moves in
