More U.S. Troops Deployed

More U.S. Troops Deployed to...

... - wait for it - ...

... to Kosovo.

250 soldiers from the 135th Infantry of the Minnesota Army National Guard, some from Albert Lea, Austin and Rochester, will leave for Kosovo in the next few days.

Similar note HERE, at bottom of story:

    Go & do

    What: Deployment send-off ceremony.

    When: 6 p.m. July 15.

    Where: Austin Armory, 800 21st St. N.E.

    Why: To see the troops off to Kosovo

The Soldiers of the Detachment 1 of the 35th Infantry Division from Kansas City, Mo., are preparing for a year-long deployment to Kosovo.

Minnesota's 334th Brigade Support Battalion will deploy its troops to Kosovo in mid-July.

NATO asks for more time in Kosovo.

Even Germany is getting in on the action with its parliament on Thursday approving a one-year extension of the country's military presence in Kosovo as part of a NATO-led peacekeeping force.

What? Kosovo?


Kosovo? You mean Bill Clinton's War?


But wasn't that back in the late 1990s?


So...we've had U.S. Troops in Kosovo longer than in Iraq or Afghanistan?

"You nailed it."


"No, no, it's just different...because...ur...because it was Bill Clinton!"
