We are at war, so *****ing about having to leave your family is bull**** and saying you would get out if you had to be away that much just highlights my point.
Glad it worked out for you though...enjoy your tour.
I didn't threaten anything, I was documenting all the crapy info that I was getting and using my chain of command to get the situation straightened out. I would have gone as high as I needed to though. You make it sound like I was crying because I had to go to the sandbox for a three month rotation.
It often amazes me how some people can just leave there family for extended periods of time and keep doing it over and over. I wouldn't do it and I would leave if it meant being gone constantly. I've heard stories of people going to Iraq for 6-8 months and then coming home and getting tagged to go to Korea. If your single that is great, being married with a two and a half year old and a seven month old I'd quit.
