So my brother is in the army and is currently stationed in the US a few hours from where my wedding is. He's told me that he is not being granted leave even though he has the time saved up. Apparently he's been trying to get it for the last couple months and it hasn't been granted so it's not like a last minute thing which was what I initially assumed when he told me he couldn't make it.
Do people with family in the military find this is a common occurrence? I mean I guess I can understand if they are stationed overseas and the military wouldn't want to fly them back and all but that isn't the case here. It'd be no cost to them they just need to give him a day off! Is there someone I can contact to make this happen without getting him in trouble? He's my only brother and I know he wants to make it and it'd mean the world to have him standing by me!
We've already talked about the option of skyping or doing a recorded message if we have to but I'd really like him to be there!
