We have received the two appeals posted below from Major Ed G. now at a student in the Army schools at Ft.Leavenworth, Kansas.
I ask that you help him with his research to the extent that it is possible for you to do so. pl
I came across this string and found it quite interesting. I thought this would be a great topic for a class I am taking at CGSC. My proposed topic is "What can our military history teach us that can be applicable to our eventual departure from Iraq."
My problem is that redeployment / demobilization is not sexy and there-fore not covered as extensively as deploying to war or conducting operations in a campaign. The data that is prominent is how many service members were released back to society. Nothing about how much equipment we left or logistical challenges faced when someone gave the green light to head home. If you can share a search string or vector me towards some sources then I will be happy to share the final product. Regards, Ed"
