Thousands of soldiers unfit for war duty
from Politics Daily
More than 13,000 active-duty Army soldiers - the equivalent of four combat brigades - are sidelined as unfit for war because of injury, illness, or mental stress. In an unmistakable sign that the Army is struggling with exhaustion after nine years of fighting, combat commanders whose units are headed to Afghanistan increasingly choose to leave behind soldiers who can no longer perform, putting additional strain on those who still can.
