  • I'm not the type to pray, but I will give you some advice. Go to the Family Service Center and tell them what your husband is saying. They can get a hold of his command and they can get him the help he so obviously needs. Good luck.

  • No he wont get into trouble. They are their to help. It sounds like he does need some couseling. Or maybe your pastor can try talking to him, writting a letter or something. Good luck, and ill keep you in my prayers. :D

  • No, there is no way he could get in trouble for it. He will receive counseling to help him, but he won't get in trouble. They don't want someone to be depressed out there talking like that because that can actually lead to carelessness that could lead to OTHERS getting hurt. They'd much rather get him helped than have a soldier with PTSD commit suicide, endanger his division or kill a bunch of fellow soldiers- or you and the kids when he gets back. That may sound harsh, but it is the reality of it. The military is a strange world to live in. Been there, done that, burned the t-shirt.

  • I just wanted to add, I'm wife to a former Marine and lived through a year long deployment to Iraq where he was in hotspots, so if you need someone to talk to about it, I'm around. We're still dealing with injuries he received and with PTSD, so it's really never going to be over.

  • I have a strong Christian friend who's husband is out there too and is coming home soon but I know she understands the seperation. if you want I can get you two connected!

  • Its the enemy [d-vil] working on him or at least that is what it sounds like to me. I suggest you tell him to pray to Yahweh every time he gets these nasty thoughts, and I would reassure him that he is very much needed and wanted at home with you and your children. I actually rebuke any thoughts from the evil one once I feel them coming on [or at least try to] some slip past. In the name of his son Yahshua. I too will pray that he grows closer to Yahweh, and realizes that he is fighting a spiritual war alongside the physical one. Yahweh can and will heal him, have faith! Blessings..
