Update [Aug. 30th, 2005|09:54 am]
Tony Grist
Joe has been told he doesn't have to go back to the army.

That's the main thing. We don't have to fight. The point has been conceded.

So now he gets to stay at home, drawing sick pay, until the processes have been gone through....

That is very good news. What a waste of young lives this mess has become.

I hate this "war".

I think our leaders lied to get us into it and then mismanaged things shamefully.

A big, big relief.

Now I just want to sleep for the next 24 hours.

Hooray
hooray.

I guess I'm surprised (but very pleased) that the Army is capable of such reason and humanity.

Oh, that's great news! Now he can rest and recover and then sort out what he wants to do with the rest of his life.

Yes.

And he does have plans. College maybe- and then work as a personal trainer or something along those lines.

Oh, good. I thought about Joe first thing this morning.

So it's done--or being done. Were they kind to him?

I'm so glad you don't have to fight.

The guy who turned up at the house this morning is a member of a team dedicated to processing this kind of case. He was pleasant- in a rough hewn sort of a way. I feel we're in safe hands.

Thanks,

Yes, it's all happened very fast- in just over a week.

But there are still doctors to be seen and, no doubt, there'll be plenty of paperwork to fill.

I can't help but imagine that the point wouldn't have been conceded so easily in this country, the climate being what it is, and the level of common sense.

I was surprised how easy it was...

But we're not out the woods yet. There is still a lot of bureaucracy to be got through.
