April 15th, 2004. It was on this date that the Pentagon announced that approximately 20,000 US military personnel in Iraq would have Their tours of Duty extended, under a program called the Stop-Loss rule. Many of the 20,000 were members of the National guard. Today is also Purple Up day, a day to Honor the children of People in the Military and all the sacrifices They make. Sometimes ” Thank You” barely touches it.
