Hundreds of Army reservists in Kuwait will come home on leave after all
Email to a Friend Printer Friendly Version  

Concord, New Hampshire-AP -- Hundreds of Army reservists who were told their leaves were suspended are coming home after all and and the military chalks up the confusion to "major miscommunication."

The first arrivals from the 368th Combat Engineer Battalion based in Londonderry, New Hampshire are expected tomorrow.

Laura Browning of Manchester, New Hampshire, whose husband, Randall, is in Kuwait, says she got the good news in an e-mail from the Army yesterday.

The families were angered Wednesday by an e-mail saying leaves were suspended. The news sparked bitter protests to the media and Congress.

Major Vic Harris of the Third Army says the leaves were never officially suspended. He says "a well-intentioned commander" got ahead of himself.

Katherine Newman of Concord, who was planning a belated honeymoon, says she's been on an emotional roller coaster.
