The troop rotation passes the halfway mark and my darling wife is still in Baghdad...
The rotation of U.S. troops in and out of Iraq has reached the halfway mark.
“We’re about at the 50 percent point,” Brig. Gen. Mark Kimmitt, deputy director for coalition operations, said Tuesday.
That rotation — involving about 250,000 U.S. troops — has generally gone smoothly, he said.
“I think it’s a great credit not only to the logisticians who planned it, but the leaders who led it,” Kimmitt said.
