There is a lot more to this

There is a lot more to this story than is being reported here. This lady is married but her husband travels in his job. He does not want to change positions in order to stay home and take care of the kids. There are two sets of grandparents, one up North and one in Texas. The only reasoning she has given for not letting the grandparents take the kids is because they live so far from NC. I can understand not wanting to go back to Iraq, but when you join the military, you know up front that they can recall you even after you get out and you are expected to have arrangements in place if you get called up. It was just reported that she will be discharged, however I know personally two single parents whose family members are caring for their children because they were called back up. It's nice that she got the situation resolved but the law should be followed evenly.
