I heard something strange the other day and I just wanted to get all of your thoughts on it. I know little of military procedure, so bear with me.
A friend of a friend, and I trust that this information is true, is in the army. He was told that he would be deployed to Cuba for a 6 month stay.
What he found odd about the situation is that he was given/told to take desert gear with him. What do you need desert gear in Cuba for???
Secondly, he was told that it was 'very' important that he not tell anyone by his supiriors. I know because he told his brother.
Thirdly, he was originally told that it would be a 6 month stay, but he later found out secretly that it would be at least 2 years.
What does everyone make of this?
