I am so p*ssed at DH's Unit. Army related.

 Can I just scream for about three days?

We are used to being lied to. So really I'm not surprised we were once again lied to.

But oh the inconvenience.

Dh was told he would come home early from this deployment to get out of the Army. First it was to be Feb., then March, then April, then May. Now... it's June or July.

Then he was told he would be able to take 60 days of terminal leave. Now it's 45 days.

Which wouldn't be that big of a deal but his stupid Commander told him he would come home for 14 days, ETS, then go on his 90 days of terminal leave back before the deployment all the way up until this latest date update.

Now I can handle nothing is what it's supposed to be. Never trust what they tell you until it's writing stuff. But WHY?

Why fucking lie when YOU are the commander, YOU are the one making the rules and calling the shots. He KNOWS that DH had to send me home and we have NOTHING in KY anymore. (I am ill, needed to come home so mom could help me because I can't do it alone anymore.) So why fuck DH over some more just because you are a douche bag?

Now, I have to figure out where he will live, how we will afford him being there while we are all here. Figure out WHEN he's even going to be back in KY to know when to be there to pick him up. AHHHHHHHHH. These asses give us this date or that date and swear it's gospel.

I don't think they are going let him go early at all.

And for the record. DH has a brain injury, bad heart, and bad knees. Before this deployment he had paper work to go to the Warrior in transition unit and go before a medical board because doctors said he is nondeployable. They deployed him anyway. So the frustration runs all the way back to Jan 2010 when he was told that he was not mission ready and could not perform his job duties safely and effectively.

I am so sick of his Unit I could scream. Just let us go already!

Vent over, thanks for listening.

 Yes it does. LOL. They are just doing it for spite now. Although I can't figure out for the life of me WHY! Last April they were trying to flat out kick him out. They couldn't, doctors wouldn't allow it. Then poof they took him to this deployment and now .... they won't let him go. Why? He's a hinderance, they've said that too him. UGG.

I'm just angry and disappointed.

what was their excuse for deploying him when he was deemed nondeployable? does the doctor who said this know he was deployed?
