so I thought I'd catch that up.
You might remember a few months ago when he transferred to a base here in the US where his wife was stationed. As mentioned, he flew in here, spent the night and then drove to said base. LONG damn drive.
Late that night he called. He'd arrived, found a room and called the wife. Who informed him that she was out with friends, and could he meet her at the notary in the morning to sign divorce papers?
I'll let you imagine how that went over.
We spent a while talking, then both of us tried to get some sleep. Next day, he met her and the only response he could get to 'why?' and 'maybe we can fix this' was "I feel we've grown apart, and I don't think we can make it better." That's it. So he read the papers very damn carefully and signed them, and walked away.
What makes this crap even more fun? According to the dates, she started filling the stuff out in June of last year. Just before he was home on leave, well before he was home for Christmas, and she never said a damned word.
When he told me about the dates, I said that if she was willing to screw him over this way then, small comfort that it might be right now, he's better off without her.
In the time since it became final, her unit transferred out so he doesn't have to worry about running into her, and he's been very damn busy. Sometime in the near future they're going to the National Training Center for a while, so they're preparing for that as well as doing the usual stuff. Busy is good right now.
Every time I've received a well-wishing message I've passed them on to him, and he's appreciated them, and back when he asked for books and such many sent those(and the books were passed on to others who VERY much appreciated them) so for those of you sending and thinking of him I thought I ought to bring you up to date.
