The Anger

Recommended Posts

wow this has got to be the best fathers day ever getting told our leave is canceled and we arnt going home to our family's till "hopefully" around Christmas maybe later. We've been on this roller coaster ride of suspended then good then suspended then good ride of if we get to go on leave or not. Now we just had a meeting and its out right canceled. lets just say there's alot of tension in the air plus we got a group of guys coming back tonight after being on leave for nearly 3 weeks if they know whats good for em they wont even mention they ever left and just roll right back into the ******* were receiving.

I wouldn't mind if it was just the wife I mean id be mad and upset but it would easier to handle then telling my 3 year old who every time we skype asks me why im gone so long and if im ever coming home and if i love him. Hes always asking me to come home and take him fishing and iv been telling him next month in a few weeks and he gets all exited now I gotta tell him not till probably next year it sucks. All because apparently our orders just say not to exceed 400 days but not something bout minimum number of days or some BS like that.

I guess there anticipating fights to break out to because they got MP's all over the place and told us any fist fights will result in an article 15, jail time, and assault and battery charges and that if were gonna do it do it in the barracks and don't let the MP's find out. I don't plan on getting into a fight but i may verbally lay into some one everyone's about to snap though some guys are out a few grand had marriage proposals all planned at Yankee stadium all kinds of stuff me I just wanted to go see me kids my leave was on my youngest sons 1st birthday. Some one just said its on the news back home also about how were getting screwed over.

ugh ok rant over

I was just talking today about maybe going active or extending my guard contract another 6 years think this just made up my mind after all the other times we've got the shaft. at least we still have EIB to go for but with our luck they will cancel that too

Sounds VERY familiar. Got tired of watching her die a little bit every time we had to go out the door but you Army guys have it way worse than we ever did. They need 11 bang bangs? Who'd a thunk it! LOL...

I love being a 11 bang bang or grunt or what ever ya wanna call us but this deployment absolutely ruined it for me first pushing it back a year then a week before we leave they cancel the Afghanistan mission and tell us were not deploying anylonger then a few weeks later just before Christmas get a call to be ready were leaving in a month this time to go to Kuwait. Then half way threw mobilization they take half the brigade send em home then take us remaining split us again half go to Afghanistan half to Kuwait now you would think they would ya know with all this sht happening over there send the guys who are good at shooting sht. nooooo lets send some engineers, and mechanics and we'll send the MP's and Infantry to Kuwait Naval base I don't understand
