Reservist granny going to Iraq

I just heard about a reservist in her late 50’s who walks with a cane. She’s never been in anything close to a war zone – and just received orders to go to Iraq for a year. And, due to her specialty, it’s no desk job she’ll be going to either…

Yes, of course reservists can get called to active duty. But a granny with a cane? This is madness.

    One wonders why a granny with a cane is even in the reserves, since the reserves by definition are eligible for active duty.
