DoDLive Bloggers Roundtable: Maj. Gen. Thomas W. Spoehr

Maj. Gen. Thomas W. Spoehr, United States Forces – Iraq, Deputy Commanding General for Support

We recently held a DoDLive Bloggers Roundtable with Maj. Gen. Thomas W. Spoehr, United States Forces – Iraq, Deputy Commanding General for Support, on Thursday, Oct. 13.

Maj. Gen. Spoehr discussed the ongoing reposture efforts, particularly the redeployment of troops and equipment during the last 90 days of the Security Agreement, which officially began 1 Oct. He also spoke about quality of life for troops and questions about USF-I’s ability to react to a possible request from the Government of Iraq to extend U.S. troop presence  beyond 2011.
