Ordinarily I really like this show. Almost all the families they choose really need their help and the best episodes are when everything is out of their control. When a family tries to do everything right but tragedy after tragedy befall them, yes, they need the help like the people get on this show. However when someone puts themselves in a situation because of sloppy decisions they should not get this help and wind up becoming an example of how you can mess up your family's life but it's OK since someone will help.
When you're in the military either reserves or national guard you have to prepare to be called away especially during a war time situation. You do not put your family up in a craphole house and then start building a luxury house at your leisure. You do this AFTER you get out. This was his fault.
When your family is living in a craphole of a house you do not collect antiques, you sell them so you can take better care of your family.
When you leave your family living in a craphole and get called to duty and go to Iraq you should be ridiculed and looked down upon, not get leave and a free ride back home to go on vacation to Disnely World while everyone else back in Iraq is thinking they should have screwed their family over instead of leaving them in good conditions. Maybe everybody in Iraq should get a free, gigantic house full of goods when they get back.
This is the wrong lesson to teach people and I could not stand to watch another minute of this episode. Are they running out of families that deserve this??
