Relief!

The Army HRC just called Matt...he got his educational deferment!!!  I am so relieved.  We both are.  His old report date was November 1st, and his commander gave him 77 days to finish the semester and have some time.  For real?  77 days?  Is that not a random Army number, or what?  

D-day is now January 17th.  156 days away.   

I feel like a huge weight has been lifted...it is just so much better having an actual date.  The not knowing was really getting to me.  Whew.  Another good thing - the deployment should be much shorter, as he's still joining the same unit.  Hopefully he'll only be gone from January to November-Decemberish.  

SO!  Whew.  That's that.  Are you new, and don't know what the hell I'm talking about?  You can read some background right here.
