"Gap in Army Adviser Brigade Deployments Could Create Complications in Afghanistan"
Once again, an article about the SFABs indicates that the higher-ups in the Army did not think how to use, deploy, & replace SFABs in-theater. How could these folks at "Big Army HQ" not only hastily deploy the 1st SFAB before they were fully prepared but then not have a plan to replace them in-theater without having a gap of several months? WTF? How about extending the brigade to cover the gap, or at least extending a few teams? I suspect there are several SFAB advisers that would volunteer to extend for a few months (extra tax-free pay is nice). If it is decided to deploy a few 2d SFAB teams early, I recommend those teams are made up of volunteers AND guys with previous adviser experience.
