That Sounds Very Government-ish of Them

My good friend Chris found out a couple of weeks ago that he's still on IRR. That's Inactive Ready Reserve. Army, I think. It's been 9 years, and NV National Guard already has him completely out. But then he gets a letter from the Feds informing him that they've located some form or other indicating he still has two more months to go.

This could anything from nothing to 18 months covering for someone in Nowhere, Some State, to 24 months on the ground in Iraq. He was thinking about trying to preempt them by signing back up in hopes of having some control over where to go... not sure if he did or not, but he sent me an email yesterday saying we're going to get to see more of him (a fine thing) because he's hooking up with some unit in Mountain View (not necessarily a fine thing). I don't even know what the Army has in Mt. View or why they would...
