My husband told me that yesterday his instructor told him that soldiers with his MOS have a high possibility of being stationed in Korea. If he is there for a year or less families can not go. This is very upsetting for us. i understand that there will be times in the Army that we will not be able to go go with him. I UNDERSTAND that. However, it is still upsetting that we may be away from him for up to a year, we are already not living together because he is still in training. I'm starting to get really frustrated with people telling me that didn't I realize we would be away from him for long periods of time? YES OF COURSE I REALIZE but couldn't we get a little sympathy? I mean it's not easy being away from the the love of your life. If one more person tells me that I think I will hit them. Seriously.
I also know that he is still in training so hopefully he will not end up being stationed there. We are praying it won't happen. I'm going to try and not stress about it until we have orders in hand. Until then there is not a thing we can do about it.
I got a text message from my husband at 5:30 this morning. He told me he is taking his PT Test tomorrow. In order to be phase 5 one of the requirements is passing a PT Test. Phase 5 means passes on the weekends and eventually he will be able to live with us. The test consists of running 2 miles in 16min 30 sec. 50 push ups in 2 mins and 50 sit ups in 2 mins. My husband can do the running and push ups with out a problem. He struggles with sit ups but has been doing them through out the day for a couple months now trying to make himself stronger. Please pray with us that he will pass his test. We really miss each other and he misses our son more than anything. I know he is really worried about it. Please keep him in your prayers.
