Hi ladies. Here's the back story before I start venting:
DH was supposed to deploy. Then he was put on limited duty and was told he couldn't deploy because of his bad shoulder and was told his surgery is scheduled for Dec. 14th. (Which made me excited since he'd be around for the birth!) His battalion even switched him to a different company that would only deploy if back-up was needed. His unit recently went to their field op for the upcoming deployment. And today his chain of command told him that he'll most likely be sent to the field op and then deploy! He called me very upset since he doesn't feel like he could properly back-up his guys while overseas. He went from upset to PISSED explaining everything they told him. He even spoke of going UA to make sure he wouldn't go to the field op; but I started talking him out of that since it's stupid to run away from something. And now I'm really upset since I had already it set in my mind that I'd be able to see him throughout this pregnancy. I mean, he had the papers from his doctor and his therapist both stating that he couldn't do any regular duty!!
My question is: can his chain of commend go against his light duty orders and make him train for an upcoming deployment then deploy? Is there anything he can do to override what his chain of command is doing?
I'm a new military wife, and still getting the hang of what can and can't be done so I apologize in advance if my question/rant is ridiculous.
