Yes, the Idaho National Guard troops are back in the United States and we are forever thankful for that, but why can't we seem to get them home? The "demobilization" process can be lengthy, but instead of it being drawn out into an almost 2 week process, that time could be cut down to about 5 days! They are and have been going to ONE (group, task, or briefing) per day that take only ONE hour on average. The rest of the time they are stuck there on base having to spend their own money for simple things or to do anything fun(when its allowed) and many are coming back to no jobs, so this isn't helping them. They are not allowed off the base to do anything or go anywhere. The soldiers who have already "outprocessed" can't even get a plane or bus home for another 2-3 days after! Does it not make sense to get our men and women home as soon as possible and would it be saving our military money to speed up the process in a more timely manner? I think they should have had plenty of time to organize the planes or busses for the troops and found that they can do more than ONE, one hour task a day. Our servicemen and women deserve better than this!
