Just another Tommy example.

The same happened during GW-1. The post Cold War drawdown of troops had started and the Pentagon wasn't about to stop it because of a little war. Many troops who were deployed received those notices.
I wonder when the lies will stop and truth begin, even as grim as the truth may be. And then I remember that for 70 years, the reign of terror in Russia called itself "the people's government." We have so far to fall, yet we are falling fast and Hell yawns to receive us.
