well, like i said... i'm new (sort of) about understanding the army. so here's what i dont understand, why would the military and the media announce publically of what we are going to do ahead of time?? i mean isnt that jeopardizing our soldiers safety? isnt that giving the taliban heads up of what we plan on doing to them? for example, i read on yahoo, armytimes, etc... that: "A senior military official said Monday that the offensive on Kandahar was expected to begin in June. The goal is to rid the city of Taliban forces before the Muslim holy month of Ramadan begins in August."
i guess i am just confused that i am not able to announce or publically say where and when my husband is going to be deployed to? BUT they are able to announce that? maybe someone else can help explain this to me.
