I posted this note on another website in reply to a member's question:

Thanks 4 ever. Not much new has happened. He has been not allowed out of the wire. Medical rehab. He took the splint off his finger but they still are making him wait. He showed up to roll with his team a couple of weeks ago but they did not let him go.
He told me a funny story awhile back about his the mental health interview they did after the explosion.
Seems that they had an Air Force SGT asking him a bunch of silly questions.

"Were you angry after your injury?" "YEAH"
"What did you do about it?" "Nothing. The guy who tried to kill me was dead."
"And how did that make you feel?" "ANGRY OF COURSE."
Now I should point out that my son noticed right away that the AF Sgt's partner was a very cute E4. She kept giggling whenever my son fired back a satirical line at the dufus I mean Sgt. So he figured why not keep going and try to impress the young lady.
Next question-
"Do you have any loss of memory of events that occurred prior to the accident?" "Now how am I suppose to know that?"
"Excuse me?" "Well if I have no recall, I do I know that I forgot it?"
The girl busted out laughing.
AF Sgt to the E4, "You're suppose to be on my side."
I do not remember he response.
After doing this same bit for about 20 minutes the interviewees left while my son waited in the room.

An AF Captain came in. I do not know if the room is wired for sound. I assume it is. The Capt said to my son, "I hear you are giving my Sgt a hard time." "Well the questions are stupid."
AF Capt, "There is nothing wrong with you. You can leave."

Isn't it comforting to know that it is these rules and regs that keep America safe? ::roll:

He is going to get 2 weeks leave in the middle of Feb. He has plans to catch up with a lot of his friends that are off at college. I told him he has to give his Mother a couple of those days.

He gets it from me. I have been a smart @ss from why back. He has taken it to a whole new level. I have a hard time mocking authority figures. He is not intimidated.

OH by the way. He is a SGT now. The orders have been sitting on some schmuck's desk (and I mean that in the full Yiddish definition.) for 3 months or more. Someone finally smacked the schmuck on the back of the head and got the promotion moving again.

Congrats to your son on his promotion. What sucks is now he will have to be the one asking those questions in the future. :icon_smile:

Glad he is doing alright though. Enjoy your time with him on his leave!

I have on many occasions. He does appreciate it. No snappy comebacks are given. He has had people thanking him for a few years. At first it was hard for him to accept as he had not "done anything". I talked to him about that a lot. It helped that his grandfather served in Germany during the Koran War so I was able to ask him if his service was any less honorable than the men who were stationed in Korea. I asked him about the soldiers who were stationed in camps around the US during WWII and Korea, do we look down on them? When he told me no then I was able to tell him that his service has been no less honorable.
He finally decided to accept the thanks and well wishes from strangers for all those who had been overseas.
Now that he is there himself he really does appreciate everyone's thanks and prayers.

WPR - Nice read.

I have never served, but have heard from family and friends who have that the military is a lot of bureaucracy. This confirms it.

Very funny. I'm glad he seems to be doing ok and hope his finger gets better.

As far as he was concerned, It was the ol Ray Nitsche method of spit on it, rub a little dirt on it. Wrap a some tape around a couple of fingers and let's go.
