    No one knows what the outcome will be, but it was certainly welcome news when we learned recently that the U.S. Supreme Court will rule next summer on the constitutionality of ObamaCare. And while it is not the Court’s job to rule on the merits of the legislation itself – only on the considerable constitutional issues the misguided law presents – the Court will nevertheless do the nation an enormous favor, in terms of policy as well as liberty, by tossing out this abysmal piece of legislation. The consequences of ObamaCare are already afflicting the nation. Since it passed –...

    WILLCOX — Some soldiers of the 269th Signal Company jumped from Fort Huachuca to this agriculture community in northeastern Cochise County Tuesday. In the military, “jumping” is the movement of a unit from one place to another, like what is happening the next couple of weeks with the 11th Signal Brigade during Huachuca Thunder 2006, an exercise to validate the brigade’s communications equipment. But Monday’s jump for a small group of the 269th also was to show appreciation to students at the Willcox school system, especially the middle school students. The students became pen pals with one of the 269th’s...

This is the third election this year, and each time the amount of support coalition forces provide has been less, military officials said. The plan builds on experiences gained in the Jan. 30 National Assembly election and the Oct. 15 constitutional referendum. Iraqi police will provide close-in protection at the polling stations. Iraqi public order battalions and Iraqi army soldiers will provide the next level of protection. This second ring of police and soldiers will search for suicide bombers and...

The contributions of the units vary, but all are participating in operations. The Iraqi ministries of Defense and Interior have developed readiness assessment criteria for units. Much like the readiness assessments for the U.S. Army, the criteria measure capabilities in six different areas: personnel, command and control, training and mission-essential tasks, sustainment, equipment, and leadership. Different readiness levels indicate different capabilities. Level 1 is the highest rating, where units are fully independent in all aspects. This includes...
