Hello everyone, I have been gone on missions none stop the last couple days and to make matters worse, there are problems back home.

I am writing this in the hopes that you all out there will be able to help me. I will be returning home from Afghanistan within two months. My wife decided as of three days ago that she could not handle the deployment or the guilt of her actions while I was deployed and informed me I would be coming home to an empty house.

I am now looking for a group, organization, or whatever that has to do with prepping. I have given up on pretty much everything other than self preservation and the strong honor and respect for the constitution and rights I see my government stepping all over. I have no time to worry about what has happened or what will as life is WAY to short to live unhappy and with regrets.

If there is anyone out there seeking a very handy and knowledgeable prepper/survivalist/ex-military(when I return home) it would be greatly appreciated. I am focusing the rest of my days on the lifestyle of a prepper.

Sorry if this seems like a drama board but for those of you that know BetrayedPrepper you will know this is not the case in that I really need this now more than ever. Thanks again

I live in Oregon mate. I got 2.5 acres. So yeah you always got a place to land your feet until you figure out whats going on. Im not ex military but I been around for awhile. The big deal is you got a place to land your feet so you dont have to feel like your coming back to an empty nest. I got a crapton of shit going on so youd never be at a loss. So if nothin better comes up shoot me some pm's.

Just remember two things and you will be fine: Every ending is a new beginning. And as a very wise person once taught me, the best revenge is to live well.

I wish you all the success in the world as you begin the next chapter in your life.

Agreed. A person who I admire told me as I was reeling from a divorce "happiness is the best revenge."
The sudden change from military to civilian can be very difficult. If you lost buddies...................................
Well, it can be very difficult.
I can not offer you any physical/material support, but if you ever need to reach out to someone who has been thru the journey you are about to embark on feel free to send me as many personal messages here as you need.

I am so sorry for this to have happened to you. You hear of this way to often. Thank you for serving our country but sorry it has caused a divorce. My son is going through a divorce right now and I keep telling him, "hang in there let it take it's course. Things will turn out for the best in the end. "I don't understand infidelity. I guess they will always be searching for something new. I hope you find happiness in your life and you will put the wrong she has done to the back burner.

By the time I was 30, I had been married and divorced 3 times. Ok, maybe I was a glutton for punishment. I SWORE I was NEVER getting married again after the 3rd. I moved Texas and met my current wife. We have been married for over 24 yrs now and we are still friends too. We still enjoy each others company. So don't give up. Hang in there, this too shall pass.

First I would like to thank each and every one of you for the messages that you have posted. I am very happy to see that you all are out there willing and caring enough to send a word of wisdom and advice. The number one hero in my life from a child to this day told me,"Son you cannot live life unhappy for it is to short and can be taken from you in an instant, we don't know our time but we know it is coming so live your life happy and free and be ready for when you are called to come home"

My fathers words are echoing louder and louder as the days pass and I feel as if I am already over this bump in my road of life. The point of this is to see if there is anyone out there I can help. I thank those who have offered their words and to those offering a place for me to stay. I have a house and I have my material objects be it weapons ammo clothing camping gear and all that.

Rather than soaking myself in the troubles I was looking to take this chance to help others. If there is anyone out there in need of a prepping item or advice or need help building a shed,house,bunker,greenhouse,hydroponics system, I am willing to help out. I love traveling and money is not really an issue for me.

I am taking the bad and allowing a potential good is all... Thanks again.

I will be leaving this thread open to those that will reply and I will continue to check it but I regret even posting it. There are enough problems in the country and in the world today that mine seem trivial so keep you heads up eyes focused and keep fighting for our freedom and rights for as soon as we stop thats then the noose they have around our neck will finally be tightened and the level pulled.

Take care.

Beats me why they marry servicemen in the first place, it takes a special sort of angel to be able to handle the long separations..

Sorry to hear this. Unfortunately, it happens far too often. All I can say is do what you can to move on.
