Sen. Dick Durbin on 23 News

U.S. Sen. Dick Durbin says military reservists should be spared from multiple deployments to war-torn areas like Iraq except in times of a national emergency.

During our interview Monday, Durbin said Congress should limit National Guard and Reserve members to no more than two deployments.

And Durbin, who last week was elected the Senate Democrats' second-in-command, also says Congress should limit the length of tours of duty.
