What weight the Navy is pulling now

I didn't realize the Navy had a Provisional Detainee Operations Battalion. According to a press release from Fort Bliss, "The Sailors are scheduled to deploy to Iraq and Afghanistan where they will maintain custody and control of detainees."

I must have missed the delegation of that task to the Navy.

And at least one of the battalions is based here in Hampton Roads.

  1. My son is in that battalion. They are indeed working in Iraq. When he joined the Navy, I never thought I would have to worry about a situation like this. I was mistaken.
