The Promise:

The Obama Administration promised to restore the Deployment Policies under which the Reserve and Guard Enlisted:   “America should recommit to the broken promises made to the men and women who serve in the Guard and Reserves. An Obama administration will:  Limit lengthy deployments to one year for every six years;  Restore the 24-month limit on cumulative deployment time;  End the "Stop-Loss" program of forcing troops to stay in service beyond their expected commitments.”
