Last night DH and I had the pleasure of meeting some of the command team from 25th ID in Hawaii (our next duty station). We also had a VTC with the rest of the command team. My husband's orders had that he would be going to a brigade. When we walked in to the meeting last night, we found out he was being assigned to division staff. WHAT!?
Now this isn't really a big surprise and there's nothing we can do to change it. BUT, the kicker is that this means he will deploy to Iraq this winter, rather than to Afghanistan next spring. Again, nothing we can do about it, but another wrench has been thrown into my "mental planning" for another deployment. Add to that the fact that my husband was wounded in Iraq on his last deployment.
Anxiety? Yes. Can I deal with it? Yes. Do I like it? No.
That's the military for you.
