Keep in mind that January saw the start of the U.S. military’s biggest unit rotation since World War II. According to Riggs, eight of the 10 active-duty Army divisions are now rotating in and out of Iraq, while one-third of the Army National Guard's combat battalions have been called to active duty. We do not have enough soldiers in the Army to provide for a reasonable rotation schedule of fresh troops into Iraq and for other missions, such as Afghanistan.
