Rumors of Nick's extension are false

I received an email this evening with the following message from Lt. Yaw:

After President Bush’s speech on Iraq last week, you may have heard rumors circulating about our brigade’s combat tour being extended. I want you to know that there is no truth to these rumors.

There is a website that you can access to check on the extensions that are taking place in the Army. The website is as follows:
