I bet there were some pissed off families. Remember 3rd ID. They had half their equipment on the boats and then they were ordered back into theater.

To keep your sanity in the military, hope for the best but expect the worst. It will save you from unnecessary worry and pain. You'll see you man soon. Just believe it when you are in his arms.
Sounds like that 2 month "Training mission" my cousins hubby went for.. and she was pissed that he was missing their anniversary... and then he ended up a year in Kuwait.. that was some messed up crap.


I really am happy that he is coming home. Really.

know about the waiting....... lol...... the military does nothing BUT make you wait!!

:P Doody, I always enjoy reading your posts....... They are always worded so nicely.

Although Dexter cannot stand waiting. I've noticed that about my father too. I can wait around all day (contrary to opinion here) for something, but every military man I've known could not wait for anything.

Yes indeed. Both of my parents were in the Army during the first Gulf War. I know how you feel.
