Ugh. DH has been with the same MP company for 7 years and through 3 deployments. He does Commo for them, he's not an MP. 6 years ago when we tried to have our wedding (we were already married) he put in his leave packet 4 months in advance and 3 weeks before our wedding they tried to revoke it because of a range. Um hell no. I photocopied our entire wedding planning binder with receipts and dumped it on the Commander's desk. (Edit: Because he wanted proof that we were going home for our wedding, not just a vacation.) Then I had a Bridezilla Sh!t fit. They approved his leave.
Then I became the FRG leader for 2 years and got them home from one deployment and off to another. You would think they would be a little bit grateful for that... nope. Didn't even get a certificate of appreciation.
Now they are trying to hold him back from our baby shower. We spent an hour in the office looking at the long range calendar trying to figure out when there would be no ranges, no trainings, no field craziness. We settled on the last possible week that I can fly.
Now they are saying that he can't go because they have some rediculous driver's training. DH has had a driver's badge for 8 years, has a current Army driver's license, and basically doesn't need the course. He could teach the frickin' course!
He's got 17 use/lose days of leave because since our wedding he's never taken leave that wasn't block leave or R&R from a deployment. This is our first child and it took a hell of a lot for us to be able to have her. We want to celebrate with our family but this Company is being rediculous about it. Sometimes I hate the Army.
