Gov. Warner unsure of where he sent VA Nat'l Guard?

This story hits close to home for those of us who live here in the home of the "Stonewall Brigade" ... the 116th Infantry that is currently deployed to Iraq and heading home in February.

Alexandria resident Mark Seavey, formerly of the Stonewall Brigade, was quoted in today's Mailbag in the Washington Times:
"I noted with a wry chuckle your discussion of [Virginia Senate candidate] Mark Warner's fundraising mailer, which admonished President Bush for the 'mismanaged war in Iraq' and the need for a 'responsible plan to bring our troops home.'

"In 2004, I was activated with 500 other Virginia National Guardsmen to deploy as part of the global war on terror. Around Christmastime, we received a letter from then-Governor Warner noting the difficulties in being away from our families and thanking us for our service in Iraq.

"One problem: We were serving in Afghanistan.

"Should a 'responsible plan' ever come into existence, I hope for the sake of my brothers and sisters in arms currently deployed that someone with a significantly less anemic attention to detail than our would-be senator is in charge of the travel arrangements."

That is Hilarious... I remember a Lefty blogger saying that Warner's military experience was commanding the VA National Guard.
