I was in the middle of posting a blog about my excited-ness over Tales from the Scales when a call interuppted it. So I'll post that blog tomorrow.
My Tiger is very worried today. Most of you know that he is an ex-Marine. Ok, I don't know the proper term for this because he always says, "Once a Marine, always a Marine."
He's a 3 time veteran for the Iraq War. Not bad for a 26 year old man huh? He was released in May of 2006. However, you are considered in-active duty for the next 4 years after that. So he can be called back up until 2010.
A buddy of his called him first thing this morning to tell him that 3 guys from his company, 3 guys that walked away from the Marines on the same day he did, were called back to duty for another year. All of these men have done 3 tours, were released, and have started their own families back home for over a year now. And now in two weeks, they will report back to Iraq.
I know I said I wouldn't posts much on my thoughts on the war.........but it BREAKS MY HEART.
Why can't these men just be left alone to be with their families?
The news said that by next summer, Bush would return 30,000 troops back to their bases/homes/ect. So, then WHY are we sending more over there? I don't get it. I really don't.
All Marines goes by job numbers. The guys called back yesterday were 0311's. My Tiger is an 0331. Not very far off huh?
God, please don't make my Tiger go back there. Ladies, just pray he gets to stay right where he's at. His life is together now. He's got a job, he's got us, he's going to school. Pray my family is not torn apart..........
