Response to flotsam (Original post)

2. My husband took the test and was told he made sergeant

They delayed and delayed giving him the stripes and full recognition until it was time to leave at rank he was all he got to take home was a small box whereas if he was given his new rank could have taken home his car and other furniture he bought living off base with his wife in Okinawa.

So went home with small box and rank came few weeks later to Fort Sill, OK. He refused to wear the new stripes and captain who heard what happened let him get away with it.

As soon as he got out he put everything in a pile and burnt it.

He ran errands for the hospital there and it was closest to Nam so he saw worst of worst as they carried everyone in.

Has hated the military ever since.

Needless to say we don't talk about military stuff, my son-in-law is a Lt colonel in AF.
