While we hate to serve as mere aggregators, one of our editors came across this article from 2012, courtesy of The Daily Beast.
I Reenlisted to Return to Afghanistan, Only to Find Myself in Kuwait.
I wanted to do the right thing, to go back to the winding-down war to bring the rest of the guys back home.
The soldier who wrote the article–five years ago–reenlisted so he could help with the “winding-down” of the war. He was sent to Kuwait instead, and we don’t need to point out that the war shows no sign of winding down.
