Gee, I hope he's "ready" for a tour in Korea. If not, we could always send him to Afghanistan to get him ready...

Hell yes, I could.

People are BEGGING to get stationed in Korea now that we have Iraq and Afghanistan as other places to go. The article makes it sound like he's sacrificing something by going over there. I went to Korea twice, and LOVED IT. Camp Casey, both times. Also did a tour in A-Stan and two in Iraq before I retired.

Maybe you should re-read the article- nothing that he SAID makes any indication that he feels he is sacrificing ANYTHING. The article actually says that he is "anxious and excited to begin his journey".
Why would you put down a fellow soldier? Especially someone that is serving their first tour of duty? I am sure it wasn't easy for you to leave your family any of the times you were assigned over seas and I am damn sure your family missed you and worried about you when you went to Korea and Iraq.

YOU should learn how to comprehend what you read. I said the ARTICLE makes it sound like he's sacrificing something.

Secondly, you are very assuming, aren't you? It was VERY easy for me to leave and go overseas. I loved to travel and even enjoyed Iraq somewhat because of the experience. Soldier's are a different breed of people, and if that guy's fake, he's going to regret his decision to join until he gets out. It's that simple.

Shut-up and bake some cookies...

First off, that guy is my boyfriend so don't you tell me shit about what he's like. First off, he won't regret this decision because it's what he has wanted for a very long time. Secondly Mr. High and Mighty, I know everything that was asked by the journalist and so what if it sounds like he is sacrificing something? Didn't you sacrifice something? Is that not why you joined the military? He would have gone to Iraq or Afghanistan in a heartbeat if it was asked of him but it wasn't. He got chosen to be sent to Korea for a year and he will serve his country in the same way that everyone else in the military does. So quit being so negative towards people who are in the same position as you one were. You should be proud that there are others willing to do the same things that you were once willing to do and still may be. So stand up and support him instead of tearing him down. And trust me, he's more than ready for Korea so don't you ASSUME you know what he is like and what this means to him...

You said "First off" twice. I know you can't read, but I didn't know you couldn't count. go back to school, look up your second grade teacher and slap the hell out of him/her for me...

I'm saying Korea is a CUSHY assignment. That's all. He'll have more time off than he will work, have access to booze, chicks, prostitutes,(everybody hits one or two of them, so you'd better have him tested when he comes back, as I can tell you some funny stories of Joe's coming home and giving his wife the clap...lol) Internets, and cheap electronics. Korea rocks, so no, there is ZERO "sacrifice" involved with going over there. If you wait for him with your legs closed, his world will be fine. Most "girlfriends" don't make it a year though. That's a FACT. Many wives can't seem to go a year either.

And since he'd go to Afghanistan if he was told to, he could always call DA and volunteer for that and they'd cut him orders the same day. That way maybe some guy who's deployed 3 or 4 times already and is married with kids, could get a break. Your "boyfriend" is going to be the only one in his unit without a combat patch, combat action badge, and campaign medals, so he's going to get treated like a turd by his peers. That'll be the extent of his sacrifice.

I have no problem with him and his service. I have a problem with civilians who don't understand the military, and believe whatever they read about it.

Now get your barefoot ass in the kitchen and cook me some dinner, woman!

Johnny, don't start running your mouth. Don't you have a DFAC to run?

You know as well as I do that Korea is the easiest overseas assignment we have anymore. My last tour there was when 9/11 took place, and we were locked down, and in a stop-move for 2 months. That was the extent of our sacrifice. After that, it was business as usual, as it should have been, based on the threat.

Darren,
stop running your freakin mouth,
be proud someone wants to serve the country
and is willing to do what he wants to do.
He's wanted to do this since he was little
and i know for a fact his girlfriend WILL
make it through a year. so stop being so
negative about everything.

Mary,
stop running you freakin mouth
be realistic about someone serving in Korea
and that it's not going to make him a hero.
I'm glad he's wanted to be in the military
since he was little, and i know for a fact
he will cheat on his girlfriend as they all do
so quit being so positive about something you
know NOTHING about. Idiot.

Dear Mary, I did 21 years in the Army. that said, I believe I know just a little more about it than you do. I spent 2 years in Korea and LOVED it. Korea rocks. Big changes between 1988 and 2000. Big changes. The Koreans aren't prostituting themselves anymore either. They have Filipino and Russian chicks working the bars now. The Russian chicks are smoking hot too.

Darren, how dare you claim to "know" that he will cheat on his girlfriend? You are way out of line here. I've known Nick my entire life, and I know he will remain faithful. Your disgusting sexist comments to Abby certainly are telling about the kind of person you are. You must lead a pretty sad life if you feel the need to comment on this story in such a manner.

Darren you must be one huge loser my father was in Korea while he being married to my mother so guess what moron it is possible to remain faithful to people you love; evedently you've never experienced that if you believe everyone over seas cheats!
