I think what you can take from this thread is more than the words and arguements.

Lets say you enlist and eventually get orders to deploy. Lets say coincidentally, at the same time you have a "family emergency" that warrents the DELAY (because you will no matter what, deploy eventually). You can pretty much use this thread and the responces you got as a rule of thumb on how you will be treated when you ask to stay behind. First they are probably going to treat you like a piece of crap and assume you are being a coward (which it will appear you are). Then after your persistantance, they will look into it...and at the same time possible confirm your cowardice, in their own minds of course. After that, lets say they find the reason is valid, they may feel pity for you and let you stay behind but only with a little bit of discontent for you because while your home your unit is in a battle zone.

Just my $0.02. Probably not worth even that much.

But I would say to yor direct question. That there is a possibility, but its not very likely, even if it is a legit reason, by the time the paperwork gets done, the situation...how can I say this...may have already resolved itself.

The Army does allow emergency leave, compassionate leave & hardship discharges.

The proper channels have to be used to get these. For instance an emergency leave has to be worked through the Red Cross. Family members notify the Red Cross, Red Cross notifies the soldier's command, the command notifies the soldier & starts working to get him home. It makes no difference if the soldier is in garrison or in the middle of a combat zone.

msg has got it right your family would have to contact the red cross and so on but it is not always a gaurentee to come home from deployment.But if you are asking a question like this you are going to offend alot of people in here not everyone wants to be deployed and I have a family member in the efmp and it won't stop me from being deployed.We join in the time of war you have to have a pretty good reason not to be deployed.

Thanks for the pics Mr. Lou! Quite some interesting designs on your leg! I'm sure glad that medical progress these days allowed you to keep it.
