You're living 'in' the Army, so I surely can't counter you on the sometime stupidity of the organism ;-)
But ... Iraq and Afg are not the only places where our military and civil affairs folk are present and doing good things. I really enjoyed reading "Imperial Grunts" last year, and it opened my eyes on the number and variety of places with active SF teams, for instance. Also, SF blogger 'Francis Marion' is deployed to the P.I. right now. So there are a lot of places where your hubby may get posted, obviously.
