Hubby is getting out of the Army. It's a bittersweet thing. Sweet because we need him more than the Army. Sweet because he'll be here with us during a very difficult time. Bitter because the Army really fucked us over pretty good.I have lost a lot of respect for people. It seems like people don't give a shit what you're going through, who you are, what you've been through..even military wise. They make it out like they are all about families. Hahahahaha. Right. My husband has been through this shit once for 6 years and he was overseas 3 times. He was Special forces, very dangerous job....risked his life, saved some, I'm sure he's taken a few also. So he gets out and struggles so hard to find a job bc of all this buddy buddy bullshit around our town. We end up creating debt from this and so he goes back in but this time to the Army instead of Airforce since they AF wouldn't take him bc of his debt.

I feel a lot of disappointment looking at older veterans who've been through wars, trying to get medication that ends up costing them more than their fucking mortgage a month. I feel for the young and old alike. People don't give a fuck what you've done for this Country, or what you've HAD to do . America is a money whore and that's all there is to it!

It isn't enough that we have to see my son go through getting his chest cut open and his heart tinkered with, they are worried about who's cheaper to do the job. They can go fuck themselves.

Tri care? Tricare is a JOKE! They denied a shot that my son needs each month because "the child in question was not born with a congenital heart defect and or lung issues" My son was NO DOUBT born with a very serious heart condition that's why we need the fuckin' shot! DUH!

Drs, Army, Tricare they can all suck a large cock and or load.

My hubby is prior Military. He did his time and got the HELL out..Tricare was decent at one time but from what I hear now it is awful. He was gonna go Army but he chose a different career. I hate to see any Military family go through what you are or did go through. It will get better in time.. hugs

Yeah Pair, a few years ok Tricare was excellent. I guess when the economy went down they did too. They really don't care about soldiers or their families. It's become nothing but business. It is so frustrating. He has been back in since April but he is medboarding out. He has been hurt since May. After breaking his profile tons of times and treating him like dirt his hairline fractures aren't healed and his arches in his feet have collapsed...so it was basically either medboard out, take a lump sum and collect a % a month or get chaptered and have nothing. He was gone my whole pregnancy, made it back the day AFTER the baby was born via emergency c-section..he could have been home sooner bc i was having complications but someone screwed up the paperwork in a very dumb way. (the paper work actually read that he wanted to go home because his friend was having a baby ....uhhh.)Then we find out about our sons heart defect and he had to go through hell and high water to get his leave extended... after xmas he wont have any leave left and who knows when my son will have to have his surgery. I hope he is home by then..its just never ending. I know we struggled before with bills but atleast just with the steady paycheck he's gotten we've been able to pay off our debt. So it wasn't for nothing but I'd rather have him here with us. Jobs are hard to get, but not impossible. We'll make it.
