Now that is what I call a stop loss!

Brilliant headline from the front page of the Seattle Times this morning.

A Pasco guardsman is fighting the Pentagon's right to add 26 years to his enlistment.

Lifetime enlistments, just like under the Czar. I am assuming it is supposed to be 26 months but you never know. Bush and Rummy could be up to something.

Update: Actually now that I think about it, what they are referring to is when you stoploss someone it become indefinite, although it has to follow certain rules, usually 90 days past your deployment. So they code this in the system at some far off date like 2030. This happened to a bunch of people I served with in Bosnia. But no, they do not make you serve 26 more years.
