Please sign my petition to stop 12-18 month deployments. That is too long that our service members have to be away from their families- These men and women need sometime to be with their families- Please sign and pass on- They know they have to go but to go for 6 month rotations would make it so much easier these men and women are already makin the ultimate sacrafice with their lives- The divorce rate in the Army is too high and thats because they get deployed every other year for 12-18 months- I am an army wife and my husband is on his 3rd tour in Iraq. He hasn't completed this tour and already knows when he is going back in 2010- Now 40% of the Army hasn't been to Iraq but we keep sending the same 60% over and over again- Please sign and pass on for others to sign- Were not goin anywhere for awhile we can at least make it easier and boost morale-

I  started a petition to stop extended deployments I know its a far stretch but I needed to try and do something. The war itself is ridiculous we have lost so many soldiers since the beginning of the war in 2003 and the number continues to get higher and the end is nowhere in sight anytime soon regardless what the presidential candidates say. i have excepted the fact that we will not be pulling out because we are in too deep  however something can still be done the length of time that a soldier is over there is just too long 12-18 months away from family, friends, and loved ones instead of them being gone that long I think the government should make it 6 month rotations shortening the length of time that a soldier is over there will help boost morale, ease the strain on the soldiers and their families and possibly help decrease the divorce rate in the military which is crazy high..  I have talked to some service members and they agree  they know they have to go where they are told but would rather go 6 months then for  1 1/2 years but they also know that they have no say.. Please help me be the voice of the military and sign this petition and forward it on to others. Don't let your views on the war or the president stop you from supporting our troops..

I am a proud army wife who is on a mission- We the people of America hold power in our hands and if we all come together we can see results regardless of who is the president.. I  started a petition to stop extended deployments I know its a far stretch but I needed to try and do something. The war itself is ridiculous we have lost so many soldiers since the beginning of the war in 2003 and the number continues to get higher and the end is nowhere in sight anytime soon regardless what the presidential candidates say. i have excepted the fact that we will not be pulling out because we are in too deep  however something can still be done the length of time that a soldier is over there is just too long 12-18 months away from family, friends, and loved ones instead of them being gone that long I think the government should make it 6 month rotations shortening the length of time that a soldier is over there will help boost morale, ease the strain on the soldiers and their families and possibly help decrease the divorce rate in the military which is crazy high..  I have talked to some service members and they agree  they know they have to go where they are told but would rather go 6 months then for  1 1/2 years but they also know that they have no say.. Please help me be the voice of the military and sign this petition and forward it on to others. Don't let your views on the war or the president stop you from supporting our troops.. These brave men and women enlist so you dont have to (people seem to forget that) If people didnt join the military then the draft would still be enforced just think all men at the age of 18 need to submit there names still to this day but nobody is being called because we have people that are willing to sacrafice for us.. Help me be the voice- What if it was your son,daughter,brother,sister, wife, or husband and so on that you wouldnt see for 12-18 months- The same progress can take place doing rotations

 Stand up for the people that stand up so you wouldnt have too.. These men and women volunteer so that their isnt a draft- Not only are they putting themselves in danger they also have to leaved their loved ones behind for 12-18 months at a time-- It is easy for someone to dictate what someone else has to go do and say they will be okay if they never have experienced it.. Please help me be the voice of the brave men and women that defend our freedom- regardless of your views of the war and the president it shouldnt stop you from supporting the troops...

please check out my petition.
