Byrd says No

... "“Lt. General James Thurman, the Army’s deputy chief of staff for operations, has said that he hoped, but could not promise, that if the demand for troops stabilized at around 15 combat brigades, the use of the ‘stop loss’ could be ended by the end of Fiscal Year 2009, or the beginning of Fiscal Year 2010 – in September or October of 2009, more than a year from now. ‘But demand exceeds supply right now,’ he stated."
