Families of Reserve Unit (Kansas City) Website petition to bring them home
This one is open to signatures and messages from anyone.

http://www.129bringthemhome.com /

On September 9th, 2003, our loved ones, currently serving in the Iraqi theater, were delivered orders extending their overseas stay. They have been told that there is a chance they could be home in May 2004 with the possibility of an extension to January 2005. May 2004 is a minimum 16 month deployment for this Reserve Unit.

Leaders have notified our soldiers that their minimum continuous 12 month activation begins when they arrive in country (Iraq & Kuwait) and does not include the time they served after they left their homes to report for active duty nor does it include the time they will be required to serve when they arrive home.

We, family members and friends in support of bringing home the 129th, find this change of rules and the failure to give our soldiers the assurance that they will return home at the end of their 12 month in-country tour of duty unacceptable. The negative impact on our soldiers' morale as well as the impact on their families has already been felt

From their comments page two excerpts.

I strongly disagree with our presence in Iraq. I strongly support
bringing you home. You have served way beyond what you were called or
prepared to do. I continue to pray for your well being.
James C. Long

Please remember how this administration has treated the military come
election day. Vote Mr. Bush out of office. Thank you for all that you do. We will not forget you.
Katherine I. Menges
