I did come down on orders to Iraq, to haed back as an Advisor. I was torn because leaving Indianapolis and my family was going to be harder this time. However, once I started going through the SRP at Fort Knox, the Docs took one look at my medical records and said, "Oh, Hell no!"

The gave me a temp profile of 3 in Pulminary and 2 in hearing. This is a temporary until they get a new CT and then will probably become a permiment profile.

For an active duty officer it is the kiss of death to have a PULHES of less the 1s. I will no doubt go up before a Medical Board for Medical retirement in the near future, unless they just let me retire.

Either way, I will not be heading back to Iraq, or Afghanistan, or anywhere else.

You'd have to be in my position to understand how this makes me feel.

I am sad. I am dissapointed. I am at a loss as to what I will be doing with my life.

I am also happy.
