Similar story. My brother, a Ranger, returned back after spending an extended period of time on the Ivory Coast(for who knows what). As soon as he got off the plane his wife said nothing but "I want a divorce." After a few weeks of trying to talk to her with no avail he just signed the papers. It really hit him and he got out of the military as soon as he could.
About 2yrs later we went to the funeral of a friend who had committed suicide. While there an old high school buddy came up to my brother and told him that his daughter was beautiful; he had no clue what he was talking about. Turns out his ex-wife had put pictures up on facebook of her new daughter. Nobody knew they had by that time had been divorced for nearly 2yrs. After some investigating my brother found out that his ex-wife had cheated on him with a good friend and was pregnant when he returned home from the Ivory Coast. She was now living with this former friend(and their daughter) in Guam.
He has since married a much better woman and has 2 young daughters of his own.
WOW!!!! Thats becoming more and more common among married couples in the military, while i was in iraq we lost 6 soldiers to suicide due to "Dear John" letters. One of the soldiers was 19yo. On a good note, My kids are old enough to know and understand what happend, Im thankful for the new woman in my life, only time will tell....
Thank you all for the birthday wishes and for all the coments. BTW I tried posting pics through my Iphone4s but somehow they are not going thru...
