Well shortly before Christmas my brother was shipped back to Iraq faster than we had expected. No contact since he left. Then other day we get a phone call that his convoy was struck by an IED. No further information was given to us. MY father and myself where going nuts as was most of my family. Then about ten minutes ago he calls from Iraq telling us that yes the convoy was hit but their where no major injuries and that he is ok going for some further tests to make sure he is ok, and then back to the field. What I dont like is that he told my father that he was upset that we had even been contacted. I said he signed a waver that unless he was mortally wounded, m.i.a, p.o.w, or dead that the family was not to be called. And now as soon as he is cleared for duty he is going to be off the grid for a while. I love him to death but he is driving me nuts (not that its a long drive) I just dont know what to do. I guess I just needed to vent. Sorry to drive you all nuts.
