I am a ARMY wife, and a prior service soldier. I am not saying it is ok, but alot of you guy's don't see what goes on behind closed door's. Alot of these soldiers come home thinking everything is ok, and find out that the women they left behind have not been doing what need's to be done. Alot of wives start cheating on their husband's the second they leave, and sadly enough alot of times it is with a friend or someone in their husband's unit. Like I said I do not agree with it, but please look at all aspects of what goes on. If you can't handle deployments don't marry a soldier.
That is true. There's more infidelity going on in the military than abusive spouses. It's crazy how many wives I know cheated on their husbands when they went to war. To me, if my husband were in a war, and I might lose him any day, the last thing I'd want to do is cheat on them. I couldn't live with myself if I cheated on them and then got a visit saying he had been killed.

No spouse should take any abuse from a spouse. One time is too much. I don't care whether we are talking about a soldier or not a soldier. If they do it once they will do it again. Either you leave, they find some help, or know that is your life from here on.
I repeat one time is too much.

I am the ex wife of an veteran of Afghanistan. My husband would beat me frequently and even in front of our kids, he had received many awards from his peers and was viewed as a hero, he used his power an inflicted violence on me because he felt superior to anyone, I am divorced now and married to a wonderful man whom is a convicted felon. Its amazing that my first husband on paper was probably flawless, while my current husband may appear as a nightmare, I would take him anyday over a coward like my ex who used the US ARMY to hide behind what a coward he really represents. I would say my ex isn't the only veteran out there that has abused before. Think twice before you judge how great our soldiers are, because you dont know as much as you think.
Day-um girl! If you can't pick 'em any better than that you might want to stop getting married every time a guy looks your way. Beat freaks and prison boys. And you are bragging about your felon fella??? LMMFAO! You get what you give. Maybe that is why you end up with the people you end up with. Lay off the marriage thing for awhile, ya hear? You said you had kids. That's so sad because they have to live through your bad choices in men. That just makes a new batch of bad apples for the next generation. Please stop marrying the bottom feeders and please stop having kids.

I did several tours in combat and have never once raised a hand to my wife and kids. If your gonna beat your wife or kids, wearing the uniform has nothing to do with it. If you never laced up a pair of combat boots then shut the fuck up!!!!!!!!

When you think your a bad ass military man, you think you own your spouse. Been there had two broken arms and a broken rib from a husband whom thought he was tough shit being a purple heart veteran. The uniform puts a violent streak into men and they think they own there spouse, kids, and anyone else once they get a taste of combat.

My brother was drafted right after high school to Vietnam. He was in the Green Beret. He came home as a stranger to us. He drank like a fish, cussed, hated foreign people, trusted nobody and would wake up and try to crawl under the couch when a plane flew low over our house at night.
If memory serves me correct that was almost 40 years ago. He never recovered. He just about drank himself to death and the rage inside him was terrible. He was mean to his wife and kids and hated himself and everybody else.
This was a boy that a year before getting drafted was a star on his high school basketball team. He was voted class clown and most likely to succeed in his Senior class. I don't think he had ever even tasted a beer prior to going to war.
He never would talk about the war. We learned from a friend that served with him that they were ordered to kill a child and it's mother who had strapped a bomb to their bodies and the friend said that's when we lost our brother. He was never the same after that. He was always good to me before he went to war (I was his favorite little sister) but in all these years I bet he hasn't spoke to me more than 10 times and a few of those times were to cuss me while he was drunk.
I miss my brother. He never would even consider going to get help. When he dies he will leave this earth hating himself even more than he hates the rest of us. How do you fix that ?
I am so sorry for this happening to your family, no one deserves any of this. God Bless

My father never recovered either sleeps with a gun. Hes now 65. The war was a very ling time ago.I think maybe being drafted so young causes it. But then again my grandfather was the best man I've ever met. Maybe some types of personalitys can't handle it. As for the war in iraq I think some serious stuff went on, as with any war but I'm thinking a little more corrupt than usual. I also believe the beatings take place when there is alcohol involved. I could be wrong. I just don't think I could be an army wife. Props to them all.

You are a disgrace to anyone that ever served in the military. You are a disgrace to anyone that ever lived that is white, its a shame someone didn't beat your mother to death before you were born to save the world from being populated by white trash like yourself. I would put a terrorist above someone like you.

Imagine putting yourself in the soldiers situation for a minute. I do not advocate any kind of violence so I'm not making excuses for anyone but I do understand why this might happen.
You are away from your family and friends for a year or more. You are forced to live in a very hot climate, with bugs that you've never seen before, crawling on you. In that hot weather you are in full blown uniform and protective equipment every day. Every little sound makes you jump in fear. Your nerves are frazzled just because of worrying will today be the day you die. You watch your friends being blown into pieces right before your eyes. You feel guilty that you are happy because it wasn't you blown to bits.
You worry that your wife and kids/husband and kids are struggling to make ends meet without you there to help take care of them. You are told to strap on a weapon and kill people...women, men and children. You are threatened with jail if you do not obey these orders to kill anybody who is a threat to you and the soldiers in your area. You develop major trust issues when you have to decide between the good guy selling vegetables or the bad women with a bomb strapped to her and her baby.
When you leave the combat zone your brain doesn't always adjust back to your life in the states. You bring those trust issues home with you. You bring those jittery nerves home with you. You bring that rage home with you. You bring that sorrow home with you. You bring that resentment home with you.
I'm amazed that any soldier just home from combat can function at all. I know I would be a hot mess and would continue that way for quite some time. Some people just hold all that inside and eventually blow.
War is hell. It changes people forever. It hurts forever. The whole family suffers.

I know a ton of soldiers whom the minute they get back from Iraq they beat the living Sh*t out of there wives on a daily basis.
Is it just a reaction from being around non-stop violence?
Is it they feel superior to the rest of society and they take there rage out on there wife?
Is it because they get so many pat on the backs, they feel that they can get away with anything?
Personally, I think the majority of these soldiers whom take out there rage on there spouse should get no sympathy no matter whether they drag Osama Bin Laden into the White House.

You train us and want a killing machine, then think you can turn it off when your done with it.
Maybe if the a**holes in Washington would let us win a war it could be over when we come home. Keep sending us back after 6 mos.. time after time with no wins, this is what you get.
P.S. Don't marry a veteran who lost his buddies, is sent back again and see's it again and again and again,he can't be turned off.
we are not going to ever be " normal "
Not go to bed, story over.
