  • Sounds like something else is going on that you might not know about. Are you sure you have the whole story?

  • There has got to be more to the story!!! The only way to really know is if your husband tells you this is happening. I know this seemingly cruel behavior occurs in the military, but typically it occurs with people who have repetitively annoying behaviors that negatively affect the other men.

    I know you want to protect him, but remember he is a grown man and as a military person - he needs to be able to defend himself. If he can't defend himself, how can he be a defender of the country? If it truly is illegal/immoral/unbecoming/abusive behaviors directed toward him unfairly, then HE must do something. YOU simply cannot....

    Have faith in him, that he will find a way to get these behaviors to stop. This will only make him stronger, dear.

  • that's not hazing.
    your hubby needs to get a grip on his business and responsibilities, and be more honest with you about how he is performing at work and treating others in his division. the military will take care of it's own, and will weed out the dead weight on their own. you aren't being told everything, and maybe you don't need to know everything. lots of wives just couldn't handle it.

  • Everyone in the military gets yelled at. In the military you do as you’re told and follow orders. Mistakes can be costly at times and he needs to be on time. Only suggestion I have for you is to stay out of his career because the more trouble he creates the more they will give him a hard time.

    Do as your told and blend in.
