| WASHINGTON, July 11, 2008 A company that publishes an annual deployment guide has sped up its schedule to release the 2009 guide this fall.
AmeriForce Publishing is changing its production schedule to get the 2009 guide out early because large-scale troop rotations are taking place later this year, Julie Miller, senior sales manager for AmeriForce Publishing, said.
Our servicemembers and their families need all the help we can offer, she said. We believe that by providing this publication this fall and updating the topics in the guide to remain current, we are providing the kind of support our servicemembers and families need and deserve.
The 2009 deployment guide will address such issues as how to prepare families for deployment, how children cope with deployment, how families can remain in contact during separation and how families can create and maintain family rituals.
This year, we are offering an updated and improved design to our guide, as well, said Sara Graves, managing editor at AmeriForce Publishing. In addition, as the times have changed, so have the issues servicemembers and their families face following a lengthy deployment. Therefore, to remain current, we are including updated information.
The deployment guide was first published at the start of Operation Iraqi Freedom in 2003 in response to a direct request by the military community, Miller said. AmeriForce Publishing already was well known for its relocation guides and other resource magazines. In the years since then, the company has had to reprint the deployment guide up to twice a year to meet unit demand, Miller said. The guide features and is supported by paid advertisements.
In 2005 and 2006, the guide won the prestigious Society of Government Travel Professional Award.
The spring 2008 deployment guide can be viewed at www.ameriforce.net/deployment.

FYI there is reportedly an IRANIAN senior engineer in Boeing who apparently had his security clearance revoked when he went to Iran with his his laptop - with classified Boeing projects on it with him. Additionally , he apparently showed off classified material on that laptop to Persian women he was tryin to impress, or marry.
No wonder we leak like a sieve. Why was he permitted to take classified Boeing info home, let alone to Islamic Iran and share it with the Mulllahs?

"Why was he permitted to take classified Boeing info home, let alone to Islamic Iran and share it with the Mulllahs?"
Why did he have clearance to have access to classified info? Because he was cheaper to hire than someone born here without contacts to Iran? Just curious... I would think that someone having contacts and making trips to "Islamic Iran" might draw someone's attention who hands out security clearances, but I guess that would make way too much sense.

The fact that Boeing did not take steps to remotely wipe that laptop the moment it left the US is beyond stupid.
Why the he11 is there not a geofence on the US for all data-sensitive laptops? The technology is out there for pennies a day.

Why was he permitted to take classified Boeing info home
This probably won't help Boeing with the tanker deal.

Q Why did Boeing hire this IRANIAN engineer in the first place ?...I don’t give a rat’s whisker if he had 12 degrees, was Phi Beta Kappa, was Dean of Teheran University, etc etc..He should never ever have been hired in the first place!...Got it Boeing ?...If i were Boeing’s CEO i would find the HR rep who hired that *** and fire the HR person on the spot for using NO judgment....
This really is irritating...Dumb stupid CEO’s of these companies..If you want a simpleton to run your company then hire Forest Gump, or some old redneck....1st rule of Management: DON’T hire a Bozo in the first place and you won’t have to worry about having to fire him or her later !
