Our deployments are wrapping up now, the SAS have already returned from Afghan, with no new deployments on the forseeable horizon its not suprising he and others are leaving the SAS. if we get more operations overseas again in the future im sure alot of them will re-enlist or be asked to return to active duty, alot of which would do so. in the mean time good on them for the work they have done in the service of their country, and all the best for their next adventure in life. the title should be rewritten to include the word 'retire' instead of 'quit'
