I HATE the Navy

I hate hate hate hate hate the Navy.

Dan JUST got home from being gone for 15 days and now they're taking him away again. They gave the IKE a 72 hour warning that they could be called at any time to go underway because of HANNA and IKE. Dan just called and told me they're going underway tomorrow morning and he doesn't know when they'll be back.

Does that make sense? Taking husbands and fathers away from their family when there is a Tropical Storm and a Hurricane coming for their families? What am I supposed to do??? I'm all alone in this huge house... in this huge city. How am I supposed to know what to do or how to keep myself safe? All I want is my husband beside me to tell me every thing's going to be ok. This has got to be the worst thing the Navy has ever done to me.

To top it all off, Dan leaves for a 25 day underway on Sept. 16th... he's home for 4 days... and then he goes on a 13 day underway. COME ON!! Really? Must they do this to me???
