My friend's husband is coming home from Iraq

He will be here in the next day or so. She will know when he calls from the airport when he arrives. Sooner if he can.

Here's the most amazing thing. He had to be able to PROVE that he could afford a return trip to Iraq on his own before he could leave! As my friend put it, what does a private do in that case? After all her husband is a Col, and has a lot more cash in the bank than a private does.
She had to mail credit cards to him as proof. However, they never arrived. So, what is he using as proof? His paycheck and his checkbook.

One question we both there some flunky in Kuwait who sits at a computer and checks your bank account and credit cards before they let you go home to the US?

Is this any way to treat out troops? NO !
