A Good Sign

If what I've heard from multiple sources is in fact true, I just might eek past this stop-loss ordeal.

Exciting huh? Cross your fingers!



A part of me feels a little guilty already, but let's not speak too soon eh?

Quietly praying my heart out for you. And waiting with baited breath...

Surprising that Obama is continuing the stop loss policy. Thought he would be a better President than this.

Still holding my breath...like you said, the waiting is the worst! This is worse than waiting for you to finally get home. Keeping fingers crossed and praying the multiple sources are right. Hell yeah, it's exciting! God(s) bless Ryan.

Fingers crossed. P.S. Only two types of people are allowed to end a sentence with"eh": People from Fargo and Candians in general;-)

Don't ever feel guilty.
You've done your part...
Let some of the 30,000 11B10s that have never been go.
Don't feel guilty because the Army can't figure out how to manage their resources. And you can find a way around the bullshit.
Be proud that you fulfilled your obligation honorably.
And PLEASE sign the petition so we can try to insure that future soldiers won't have to deal with this shit.
I have just visited GoPetition and found the following page very interesting:

OMG! I got chills down my spine reading this post. I hope you find out soon...so you can KNOW. I know which direction my prayers are going toward, but I pray mostly for your acceptance of the outcome, either way. Peace.

STOP LOSS - I was stop loss it fucking sucked the only thing that got me through was reading your blogs and it gave hope and an escape from my prison - reality. My reality just sucked I had nothing, absolutely nothing happen to us on the roads, mortar incidents, just a whole lot of twisted ankles. My deployment sucked for me horribly no matter where I was I could not feel comfortable or within my unit or privacy. I started by having an ND on a 240B after an accident had happened with out vehicle. Second my assistant squad leader left my 249 saw after we traded weapons and sure enough everyone just dogged me out and left me on my own. After everyone had excommunicated me my assistant squad leader seeing that I the E-4 would not get in to trouble and had everyone shit on me took full responsibility. Thank you very much I just got ousted by my entire unit, not was it all bad I found out then who was really a friend, and a battle buddy. But my battles did not end there when I went back to my CHU my disgusting roommate could not stop masturbating let alone keep any sanitary skills. There were times where the entire room just reeked of dirty clothes and the stench of mud, semen, BO, dirty clothes, boots that smelled like athletes foot and sewer. Complained about it, tried to help the guy, asked for help and only a few who did not have to do anything with our chain of command intervened only to get booted and chewed by his squad leader. The only thing that kept me some what sane was the fact that I was getting out and reading your blogs. To me you were living the dream, you were out there watching crap happen doing something that is worthy of your time. You maybe put up with circumstances that were beyond your reach you have been through some shit that some basic traiings private gets wet dreams of I put up with a vile disgusting human at work and on my off time. Hopefully then and only then your stop loss or your combat time is something you can be proud of and say I was there doing SHIT. I was just there with no life no heart, beat, no brain, just a zombie going along with the flow until I was ripped away from the chain of command with my ETS date. Whatever the hell the Army puts you through don't sweat it just take it and smile I did and that was my only weapon I had an out of regulation smile.
