I had remembered that Secretary Gates had spoken publicly of the change in average tour length, and that it was going to increase from twelve months to some longer term, but I couldn’t recollect any further details, such as how long and when.

So, I simply typed the following phrases into Google:  “Length of tour in Iraq”, and “Average length of tour in Iraq”.

When I was a boy, I used to build model cars, airplanes, boats, and tanks, and I had boxes full of toy soldiers.  It was then that I memorized all of the Army rankings from Recruit all to way up to the General of the Army, who is a five star general (a rank used only during war time).
