Based on my experience, there is something missing in this story. This reads like some Congressionals I've had to answer. Lot of gaps that are easily answered. For starters, has he even been placed on Convalescent Leave? I think not. If he is too unstable to travel by normal means, then he needs to stay on the base where he has the medical resources he needs to recover, not go home to family. Once he reaches a point that he just needs some rest to complete the recovery, then he can go home.

Gamecock made excellent points about missing info, especially the convalescent leave factor. I’ll toss in another piece to the puzzle and that’s the certainly pending Line of Duty Investigation. The local command may want him kept close for that process, along with the need for continued medical treatment. Given the list of injuries, I’m surprised he could even be considered for a medical release for travel but I’m no MD. GailA, use your search engine for info on the Line of Duty Investigation process - I’ve done a couple but those were over 30 years ago.

GailA: I’m no supporter of the recently re-elected POTUS but the attempt to smear him as a part of why this soldier just can’t be taken home at .gov expense (read: your wallet and mine), that lack of logic really burns my toast. How about we try to stay on topic and reduce the unnecessary rhetoric blaming every ill on a politician we don’t like?
