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.
Oh, I'm so glad for you all. I hope he will be able to move onwards to a better life now this is sorted out.
Life can now return to something like normal...

that is wonderful. I'm sure you are relieved.
I was anonymous, this time.
So glad to hear your news.
A big, big relief.
Now I just want to sleep for the next 24 hours.

I guess I'm surprised (but very pleased) that the Army is capable of such reason and humanity.
I'm relieved to hear this, my best wishes to you all.
A huge shadow has been lifted.
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.
And he does have plans. College maybe- and then work as a personal trainer or something along those lines.
That's wonderful news! Good for him.
Now he can get on with the rest of his life.
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.

I'm so glad it was all resolved so quickly!
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.
Oh, I'm so relieved for you...
I can't quite believe it's been resolved so easily.
It's been a huge relief.
I still can't get over it.
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.
