Army forces 50,000 soldiers into extended duty

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The U.S. Army has forced about 50,000 soldiers to continue serving after their voluntary stints ended under a policy called "stop-loss," but while some dispute its fairness, court challenges have fallen flat.

The policy applies to soldiers in units due to deploy for the Iraq and Afghanistan wars. The Army said stop-loss is vital to maintain units that are cohesive and ready to fight. But some experts said it shows how badly the Army is stretched and could further complicate efforts to attract new recruits.


"No, god damnit! You will fight out fake war and NOT go home to see the child you haven't met yet and you will fight some more! The chimp-in-chief will give his SOTU and say how good it is, then he will retire for some tea in the green room, and YOU will go out there and risk life and limb and YOU DON'T NEED NO STINKING ARMOR EITHER!"
