Rotation policy: Iraq & Afghanistan were really the wars we fought 1 year at a time

“Many times the Vietnam was called a ten-year war fought one year at a time.... which actually wasn't true though most service members rotated through one year at a time.

Afghanistan and Iraq, unlike Vietnam truly were long wars fought one year at a time.”
