Husband home from Iraq in 19* days!
Edited on Sat Feb-28-04 10:00 PM by Tolania
*Approximately. Talked to him tonight and they had the psych evaluation today. When the group was asked how they felt in general, he stood up and said (paraphrasing): "Pissed off that I had to be here for 10 months fighting so Bush could tell his daddy he finally found some oil."

Couldn't fit it in the title... but "Ask me anything!"

Edit: typos... too excited to type!

5. Good!
I will still end up living apart from him for a few months due to my job. Didn't realize how stressed I was until I found out when he was coming home.

12. Bless you and bless your husband !
Question:
Do most of his fellow soldiers feel the same or do they still think Bush is the boy king? I hear most of the military still have faith
in him and think they are fighting to free the Iraq people. I just hope they have come to their senses and come home safely and vote the bastards out.

14. The unit he is with
is full of Bush-haters. I guess they were all cheering him for speaking his mind. He and I have both been anti-Bush and against the Iraq War since day one. And he is very outspoken, to a point where he has been reprimanded many times over the years.

16. GOOD FOR HIM!
That took guts, I know, and I hope he doesn't get in trouble for it. I've heard that many in the military are afraid to say anything at all critical of *, that they're really being crushed as far as that's concerned. Give your husband a big thank-you hug from all of us at DU!

I'm so happy for you, you must be SO excited! Do you have any children?

17. big cahones
to say that. And most don't say anything because of the repercussions. But he's a bit older than most he serves with (32) and doesn't much care after 9 years in!

Kids... 3, but they are the furry kind that say "meow"!

13. WooHoo!!!
That's good news. I really am grateful for the crap your husband puts up with to serve our country, though. I'm from a rural area, and most of my friends from high school wound up in military service.
