My idiotic relatives are driving me nuts. I have been hearing over and over again "I hope you don't get activated!" (usually in a whiney voice). There is usually no mention of my son, since it hasn't occurred to them that he is subject to the same thing as a Guardsman. Oddly enough, they can't believe that my son could actually get called up even though he's in the National Guard (the relatives still think he's in kindergarten I guess) What's annoying about this is several levels:- I'm 45 years old, one son is grown, the other is almost there- I'm a rear-echelon you-know-what- I knew what I was in for years ago when I decided to go in the military, first active and then Guard/Reserves- the country has been attacked!One relative said she was going to pray I wouldn't get activated. Why? So someone else would? I suppose I should take this as a sign of caring, but I don't - it annoys me to no end. I told my sister about my feelings on this, and she understood. I just wish the other relatives would. Am I being unreasonable about this? I suppose so, but I'm still annoyed. George
