Kelly Pickler - Her Ahead Of Anyone Else Attitude
Join 1000's of Authors at StreetArticles Today!

Today is of course May 31, 2012. My husband is a Military Contractor over in Afghanistan. He has been there for one year all except three weeks when he was able to take a break and come home. He has been to Afghanistan two times now as a contractor. My husband is a very hard worker. People and businesses from around the world (and I mean that literally) have asked my husband to work for them next time, for whatever reason. So, he has.

He is also a retired Military Army SFC. of twenty-one years. We (especially him) have traveled almost around the world. I have to say that it is so very very wonderful and comforting to see the support that "Wounded Warriors" and ALL Military men AND women have recieved. I can say that as a spouse of a retired Military member, I am VERY proud.

So, anyway. My husband now (finally) has a chance to come home. For good. Not a leave. As I understand the story goes: My husband left from Afghanistan, going to Kuwait then another stop, then to I think he said "Indianapolis", then another stop and then home. Hmmm. He made it from Afghanistan then to Kuwait. He is stuck! in Kuwait. Alot of reasons why. But, one that hit me was he posted (to keep everyone in touch) on FB that he was "bumped, due to Kelly Pickler and her trophies." He put the end of that as a joke, but, this IS NOT a joke! If Kelly Pickler wanted to be in Kuwait (or wherever she was), then as wealthy as she is, she should have had a private plane standing by! Not, public. My (and I stress that word) husband, worked his butt off in Afghanistan and for him to be "bumped" by some public figure who can't (or won't) afford her own flight, was unnecessary.

I personally am incensed at the public figures who go Overseas (to entertainment our Military and Military Contractors) and then "bump" them from a flight to there homeland.

Finally, I would just like to say, yes, I am one angry wife and two - Public figures: If you want to come and go at leisure to a foreign land, that is your business, BUT, don't make it my husbands business!
