So I was talking to a family "friend" yesterday about my husband leaving for Haiti soon, and she says "Yeah, but he's in the service, so he's only doing it because he has to." When I corrected her and told her that he'd volunteered (he's reserves now) she said "What? Is this getting him out of another, more dangerous deployment?" (Which is also not the case. He's not scheduled for another until 2012.)
What the....? This woman is obviously under the impression that one would only go to Haiti if it benefited them. Agree, or disagree?
Also, do you think that someone's reasons for going diminish the good that they do?
I think you should give her a local proctologists card and tell her to make an appointment so they can locate and remove her head from her ass.

Not saying your husband is like this but the decision makers in the U.S. only involve us in these acts of kindness because they want something from it. The U.S. is that selfish.
