Mods, please if this is in wrong place move it .( Thankyou) Having served 19 and a bit years,and recently had my back really let go on me I am worried the army will MD me.I have had problems backwise for a while, 19 years if all be said!! However whats happening now is more extreem than ever. My current brigade is due to deploy on ops shortly, and the doc said a couple of weeks ago there is no chance on earth I am allowed to go............................ happy not to go to iraq for family, gutted for me , this is what I do for a job !!! That was first reaction, then comes the bit when I have to walk into bosses office and tell him, and pulling no punches what I had to stand infront of the boss and say was .............I cant do my job!!.........feel like shite on the mat , oh yes I did. My question is , in the tempo of todays army is there pasture to put an old Vm out to , or am I looking at an MD???Scares the shite out of me , as far as tours have been , its the been there done that scenario, not a dodger , just humphed with my back and the army aint willing to take risk on letting me loose again, BUT, whats the impact going to be??? Please please dont tell me im going to get a good kicking after all these years!!
