I am 40 years old and have 2 wonderful kids. I am married to a good man. This year was our 22nd anniversary. He is a member of the Army National Guard. He has been in since we were married but has never been deployed. He was IRR for some years but re-enlisted 2 years ago. Last year his unit was scheduled to deploy, but he was unfortunately injured and required surjery. He was hit in the head and neck with a metal pool stick and had to have a disk removed from his neck and replaced with bone from his hip and fuzed with a titanium plate. He has recovered well thank god and is now thinking he wants to go back. He has just recently sent the paperwork on his injury to his commanding officer to get a medical review set up. I don't know where it is going from here as we have not heard from them other than the news letters yet. I know the reasons he fells like he should be there. He is a soldier and that is what he was trained for and and he feels it is his duty. So am I a little selfish in hoping that they will not take him? When so many other people are making the sacrifices. I dont know how to be without him any more and it scares me. I will support him 100% no matter what happens...but......?
