57. I had a customer tell me a couple of weeks ago that he was going to Iraq for the third time.
I told him he was lucky there was no more "combat" going on in Iraq and after the two of us finished laughing he pointed me to an Army Times article whereupon GI's were VERY angry that their mission in Iraq wasn't considered "combat", because EVERY time they ventured out of the "Green Zone" they were fired upon at least once.

Now that they're "President Obama's Wars", getting out of them ASAP isn't the highest priority.
