The government can fly Hillary all around the world, but we can't get our soldiers home for a 2 or 3 week leave during the birth of their children? Which is more important?

Mount Pleasant, UT

To: BU52 - We know what is the most important don't we? I can't imagine the strength of his desire to be with his wife and new son. I pray he will continue to be protected so that the dream of being with them will be realized sooner than they think.

Syracuse, UT

The article shows she went into labor much earlier than expected, so they wouldn't have known WHEN to send him home or when he would have been ready to go back to work. Other soldiers are counting on him to do his job so they can come home safely. W/ his wife's bedrest and pre-eclampsia, he could have claimed a family emergency exemption and clearly chose not to. Military people shouldn't enter into ANY political conversation, that is quite distasteful.
