    Most posts will have the classes through mental health practices/services. If he is being ordered in or the classes are mandatory as part of his inprocessing after his return from Iraq (and I am happy he is coming home) he will be given priority in the base clinic and may even be given a list of appointments to be at. Aside from that, it may depend on several issues...what the orders were, the reasons, how the program itself is run. He will find all that out when he gets back.

    It does suck that this will take away some time from being together. But it is important that he be given a chance to decompress and work through his feelings with others who have been there. As many spouses have discovered, loving and supporting our military men doesn't always mean we can begin to understand what they have been through. Working with others who have been there is a great way to process all those emotions.

    It depends a lot on why he has to go. There should be meetings on base, if not then in the local community. The long term benifits outweigh any short-term infringment on your time together. There is usually a good reason for referal and when he is ready he can explain it to you.

    I think they are doing it as a sort of decompression from war to home. I know a few other people who are going through it.

    usually that tends to happen after you back from being deployed, some people even get sent to psychiatric wards! it all depends on how you act when you get back from War!
