JACKSONVILLE, N.C. (AP)
- Battle-weary troops and their
families braced for a wrench-
ing round of new deployments to
Afghanistan, but many said they
support the surge announced
Tuesday as long as it helps to end
the 8-year-old conflict.
As President Barack Obama out-
lined his plan to send 30,000 extra
troops to Afghanistan - while
* pledging to start bringing them
home in 20tt - soldiers, Marines
and their families interviewed by
The Associated Press felt a tangle
of fresh concerns and renewed
hopes. Some took in the televised
announcement as they played
darts in a barroom near their base,
while others watched from their
living rooms.
"All I ask that man to do, if he
is going to send them over there,
is not send them over in vain,"
said 57-year-old Bill Thomas of
Jacksonville, N.C., who watched
Obama's televised speech in his liv-
MSA ELECTIONS
From Page 1A
This was a slight decrease from
the 9.6 percent of the student vot-
ing population that voted in MSA
elections last fall. Both years
were a major increase over the
5.3 percent of the student voting
population that took part in the
Fall 2007 election.
Winter attributed the lower
voter turnout to the timing of the
elections right after the Thanks-
giving break.
She said she had planned on
advertising the election with a
link to the voting website on the
desktop of 41l campus computers
but the logos were not created in
time for Information and Tech-
nology Services to implement it.
"It's something that ITS
agreed to do and unfortunately
we couldn't get a logo put togeth-

ing room, where photos of his three
sons in uniform hang over the TV.
One of his sons, 23-year-old
Cpl. Michael Thomas, is a Marine
based at neighboring Camp
Lejeune. He'll deploy next year to
Afghanistan.
An ex-Marine himself, Thomas
said he supports Obama's surge
strategy. But he shook his head
when the president announced a
201t transition date no begin pull-
ing out troops.
"If I were the enemy, I would
hang back until 2011," Thotnas
said. "We have to make sure that
we are going go stay until the job is
done. It ain't going to be as easy as
he thinks it is."
Military officials say the Army
brigades most likely to be sent as
part of the surge will come from
Fort Drum in New York and Fort
Campbell in Kentucky. Marines,
who will be the vanguard, will
most likely come primarily from
Camp Lejeune.
er in time for it to get it set up,"
slie said.
The election had been resched-
uled for this week after the origi-
nal dates - Nov. 18 and 19 - were
deemed in violation of the MSA
Compiled Code.
MSA members acknowledged
prior to the election the difficulty
of holding an election immediate-
ly following Thanksgiving break,
since candidates weren't able to
campaign as much immediately
before the election.
MSA President Abhishek Mah-
anti said the voter turnout is good
when the holiday is taken into
consideration.
"I'm happy with the way we
did. I think the Thanksgiving
holiday . is definitely hard to
overcome in terms of people's
schedules;" he said. "The fact
that we had really good candi-
dates for the-elections-helped
voter turnout."

end of the money?
CANCER
(June 21 to July 22)
The Moon in your sign today makes
you more emotional than usual.
Unfortunately, a harsh aspect to stem
Saturn puts a damper on things. Oh well.
LEO
(July 23 to Aug. 22)
It's easy to fall into negative thinking
today. A little trick is to take your three
top worries and rephrase them in a posi-
tive way. For example, "I'm so happy to
be losing weight." Write them down.
VIRGO
(Aug. 23 to Sept. 22)
Someone older or more experienced
than you might he critical of your ideas
today. Dan't let this get you down.
LIBRA
(Sept. 23 to Oct. 22)

parents, teachers and VIPs for permis-
sion, a favor or approval. The response
likely will be, "talk to the hand."
SCORPIO

serius discussins abaut politics, reli-
gion and racial issues.

AQUARIUS

Don't let the criticisms or the negative
attitude of co-workers, (especially peo-
ple who are older or more experienced

things light.
PISCES
(Feb. 19 to March 20)
Romance is in the toilet today.
Children might feel like a burden or a
heavy responsibility. Vacations and
sports might encounter obstacles.

obsessed about your work. You believe
yau should explare yaar ideas and use

of other things. In the next year, you will
wrap up or finish something you've been
involved with for the past nine years.
