ANGRY at the army!!!!

I am a pretty patient army wife. I understand that mission come first and that my husbands job takes up almost all of his time. But today, I'm pissed!!! Reamer changed jobs and is now an XO. Unfortunately this change happened the day my parents came to visit. Since they got here, he has been working until 10 or 11 at night every day! He hasn't even seen my parents at all. The only real day that he has to spend with them is today! We were supposed to go to Lake Garda and right as we were about to leave, he got called into work. Apparently, if there is any alcohol incident at all, they have a policy that they will call everyone into work. I do not understand this at all. This is ridiculous! This is not fair to the people that are doing the right thing. Why punish the entire group for the actions of a few idiots! Why can't they just make the punishment for the offender extremely harsh? It is insane to punish so many people for one person's mistakes! At this post, our husbands are taken away so much more than other places and they work so much longer hours! Why take them away even more? I am very angry. It really seems unfair that this policy is even in effect! How can they do this? I am seriously starting to get frustrated with being stationed here!

I know I'm late reading this, but I just have to share my "enthusiasm". I totally understand how you feel. Nick is an MP so you can imagine the crazy calls we get!! Of course the punishment has to be shared, and everyone gets called in! Nick works 16+ hour shifts every day, and on his ONE day off he gets all of the stupidity calls!!! It's ridiculous, frustrating, and I feel like I'm a single mom all of the time. But hey, we adapt, cope and help others who are going through the same things. The weird thing is, I love the military as much as I hate it... Now, I understand the meaning of a Love/Hate relationship!! HAHA
