    Whatever Not what we wanted...

    Advertisements
    [So DH just told me today that we got Fort Bragg. Not even CLOSE to any of our requested places. We requested colder temperature places like Fort Carson and Fort Lewis. (We like the cold) Don't get me wrong...I'm sure it's a nice place but it's really not what we wanted at all. So that bums me out a little bit. I'll go wherever DH goes and I won't complain but I will be a little bummed out.

    It's all pending on if he passes Jump School but DH has been debating on if he should try and get out of that school (meaning he wouldn't get his "wings") because his knees have been causing some discomfort since he finished WTC. He says that if he runs a lot they will be sore and he has to let them rest for the rest of the day. Not a problem if that's all but he's sort of afraid of causing permanent damage if he does the jump school. The PT test is much more hardcore than what he's done so far plus all the landing and what not.... it has me concerned too. So I don't know what's going to happen. I would think that he knows his body the best and if he says that he doesn't want to cause permanent damage then they will agree to take him out of the school so that they can keep a good soldier. But who knows. ]

    That's North Carolina, right?
    Sorry, I'm not too up to date on where the Army bases are located

    If it is North Carolina, I think you'd love it! Beautiful weather, mountains, beach!
    Good luck though, wherever you guys end up!

    Yea it's in the town of Fayetteville, NC it's about 2 hours from the coast and the closes recognizable town to me is Charlotte, NC. We both just really wanted Fort Carson (Colorado Springs) or Fort Lewis (Seattle area). oh well.

    If he's airborne you cna expect to stay at Bragg for a long time, too. It's really not bad here, the beach isn't too far away and housing is great. I'm sorry about everything though

    Thanks ladies! I'm sure that it's a great place and it's DEFINATLY going to be better than my home town! HAHAHA Wherever we get placed it will be fine as long as DH is with me and I know that. Just needed to HUMPH for a moment.

    I really am worried about DH's knees though. He doesn't complain about pain. He really doesn't. If he tells me that he's afraid of damage then I believe him and I really hope that they will trust him. I would HATE for him to be pushed into the school when he has these concerns and have him get injured. What do you ladies think?
