Army

When my husband decided to join the military we decide that it would be good for him becasue then I could finish my degree and he would not have to go to college(not a fan of school.) We both figured it would be the best thing for our family because it woudl allow us to get ahead up and yet we feel like it was not a good choice.
When hubby went to Iraq he was ied 4 times and was told on the last time to see a neurlogists and yet when he got here they told him he ahs to see behavioral health. Why the hell does he need behavioral health? He has a brain injury.
Today he went to the aid station thinking that they would give a break and yet they gave him five days off from PT BUT he was basicallly told there is nothing that can be done for him.

Why the hell do we send our men and women over there knowing they could get hurt or worse killed and if they do survive then they are stuck to deal with on the repercussins of said war?

I support the servicemen and women but not the WAR.

Oh my. I didn't know it had gotten that bad, Jess. What's going on with him, is he, like, sick? Throwing up, dizzy, headaches? What are they trying to do - anything?
