TKC EXCLUSIVE AND BREAKING NEWS!!! REPORT: MAYOR SLY AND MISSOURI POLITICOS HOLD UP HOLIDAY SEASON RETURN TRIP HOME FOR THE TROOPS!!!
Sent our way from some of our KICK-ASS TKC BLOG COMMUNITY READERS who are frustrated with "optics" over real world support for soldiers . . . Here's a perspective on local politics and exceptionally bad planning . . .
"The 1-138th Regiment of the Missouri national guard, headquartered at 7600 Ozark Rd, in Raytown, Mo, returned from deployment to Fort Bliss, TX to demobilize on 21 Nov, before returning home to Missouri. The demobilization process, which usually takes a week involves administrative processing. However, the unit is being kept in TX, apart from their families an extra week doing nothing, because a homecoming ceremony could not be scheduled until 7 Dec due to the fact that it was the only date that fit into Mayor Sly James and other local politicos schedules. The local figures want to get their photo ops with a homecoming unit. After a year of being apart from their families, the soldiers will have to be kept waiting stuck in TX so the local politicos can look good. The Missouri Guard is is pandering to the Mayor Sly when it should be the other way around."
