A Joint Base Lewis-McChord soldier returned from Afghanistan this month to find that the loved one he’d thought was waiting for him had disappeared. First Lt. Brandon Harker left his yellow lab, Oakley, in the care of a friend during his nine-month deployment. But when Harker got home to Lakeland, Wash., he learned that his dog had been sold or given away while he was serving his country, according to an ad he posted on Craigslist. “I am just trying to get him back to me since he was wrongfully given away or sold [without] my permission while I was…

On this week’s cover, the Army is looking into shaking things up in Korea. Rather than individual soldiers deploying for a year at a time, a new plan would send complete combat units for nine-month tours. Leaders say this system would improve readiness by keeping trained units together, instead of breaking them up to send a single soldier to Korea. Also on the cover, the Army admits that many war records from the Global War on Terror have been misplaced. The statement comes following a ProPublica and Seattle Times report alleging that thousands of battlefield assessments and other records from…

On this week’s cover, the Army is laying out a new noncommissioned officer career timeline that requires more time in rank for a promotion, and less time to stay in-rank before you’re promoted or separated. Average time in rank for sergeants first class and master sergeants will increase by a year and a half and just over two years, respectively. Also this week, as the Army re-configures its brigade combat teams, about 200 units will be inactivated, while hundreds of small units will be moved or converted to other brigades. Do you think veterans who choose to study math or…
