This is how fast stuff can change.

Saturday morning drill, we were told that we had drill again next week. Meaning that we were probably going to RST (ie: "make-up") the drill weekend right after we got back from deployment. (Because like hell anyone would show the fuck up after going to war. Hell, *I* would be using the 45-90 days I would have off before going back to work doing an insane catch-up.) And that we would be gone by the middle of this month was "above 90%."

Sunday: "Oh, next week's drill was canceled, and we dropped a little in that percentage." (Yeah, the US government was planning to use Turkey, but had little doubt they would say no. :P)
