What a novel concept.
Senator Webb calls for National Guard, Army Reserve support

Concerned with the military’s continuing erratic deployment rotations, freshman Sen. Jim Webb (D-Va.) is planning to introduce an amendment to the 2008 defense authorization bill that will require the Pentagon to give troops at least as much time at home as they spent on deployments.
“We’re seeing, in many cases, our ground troops burned out,” Webb said at a press conference yesterday alongside Kansas Gov. Kathleen Sebelius (D). “The current strategy of this administration has not justified the deployment of troops in this way.”
A Democrat supporting the troops by..... SUPPORTING THE TROOPS.
Good choice picking Gov Sebelius to stand up with. She knows a thing or two about the National Guard.
