good News for us - DS not too sure

Sunday, April 07, 2013

Good Morning; I got a phone call late on Friday. Army calling for DS and wants to cut his orders to get out of Army. I immediately called DS. By the time I contacted him the person that has told him to contact her did not answer the phone. DS says his command did not even tell him, but he has been getting the royal treatment from the AHs at the unit. They are now threatening him that they are going to kick him out of the Army with no benefits b/c he has full custody of his daughter as a single father and he can not do his job any more. this is independent of the fact that he is in the process of getting a medical discharge from the Army. DS does not know what is going on, but Dh went through this after Vietnam and told DS that he is being singled out to cut cost and that if they can do something to him to make him blow up - he can be given an article 15 and drummed out without benefits. We told him that it is not personal but business. But to a young soldier who have given much to his country and the Army, it is personal.
DH told DS the best thing now is to get out b/c it will get worse and the pressure to get you out is a real issue. But the good news DS's daughter is here with GF. GF is doing very well with baby. DS is just in love with his daughter. emoticon DS says he loves the Army and would still be in the Army if it wasn't for his injury and all the surgery. emoticon

    Give your DS hugs and more hugs from all of us. We hate to see him, or anyone, treated in this manner.

    Oh my dear heaven! Is there anything ELSE that can be used to infuriate DS! AAARRRGGGHHH!!! Hope he follows your DH's advice. Lord love a duck.

I am so glad to know that GF is doing a good job with the baby. Your DS sounds like a wonderful daddy.

    Hate to see our Military treat our brave men and women with disrespect, seems that there is more and more of that. Happy that your granddaughter is thriving. Congrats.
