I just got back from Ft Benning on a State Recall (national guard) since my wife sent a red cross message. I'd like to hear what you guys think about what happened with my wife. I left monday the 4th and my wife fell down the steps at our apartment on friday the 8th. She broke her arm and and knuckles on her left side. She also tore something in her shoulder. She was supposed to be covered by tricare but wasn't in the system so she was turned away from the base hospital. She went to my guard armory to family services and they said she was SOL and couldn't get into the system there. She gave up and went to our county hospital since she had no insurance. The doctors there said she needed pins in her arm but they referred her to an orthopedist. Well, since she didn't have insurance and didn't have the money to see the doc she was sol again. She called the red cross and they said they needed the doc from the orthopedist to write something up. No $$ no doc to write letter. She did give the red cross her hospital paperwork but they said they couldn't get the message to me because i was in training. She went to the armory again and they said i was SOL and that my recruiter told my future First Sergeant that we were getting a divorce and that my wife was having an affair with my recruiter. So they wouldn't get me a message because of "marital problems". Now while all this was going on, Family services told my wife I wasn't getting paid until Dec 1st. She only had $300 in savings after paying $900 for her hospital bill. My wife started freaking out. They then told her to stay at the local shelter and go to catholic charities if she needed food and diapers until she can get better and get back to work or until i get out of Basic. This happened friday and saturday. I called my parents sunday and found out from my dad that my wife fell and got hurt. I told him to start the red cross message so i can get home and take care of my family but he told me they've been trying with no luck. I told my processing Sgt about the situation and he called my wife to also told him that the red cross will not send the message since i was in training. My sgt took me to the Natinal Guard Liason who said my wife should have been covered from the 4th and that i will get paid on oct 1st. They fast tracked me through finance then deers to get her medical coverage to her. I faxed everything to my wife to get her to the hospital but they denied her for a little while. After she finally got in, one doc said her arm was broken, then another doc said she was fine and nothings broke. But for some reason my wife overheard the second doc talking to someone from the armory. my wife called my old boss who activated our insurance and she then got our childrens doc to write something up so that the redcross message can be activated. Now i'm back and seems like everything is fine now but i feel let down by my recruiter, my rsp sgt, my future unit fsgt, Family services, the base hospital, and the red cross. My wife wants me to quit and I don't blame her. My motivation is shot to hell. My wife is definitly writing her letters to our state government. what do you guys think? Wanna kill these ads?
