I am not deploying to Iraq anymore. In fact, I may be getting discharged from the Marine Corps. I have the inherited form of a skin disease called Plantars Hyperkaratosis. It causes my feet to have a bunch of layers (about a quarter of an inch thick)of callus-looking fungus on the bottom of my feet. After extended periods of time of being on my feet, they start to split open all over the place and bleed. Then comes bruising. Now I get to spend a few days on COC duty here in 29 Palms until they figure out when the non-deployables are going home. No more money for me. No being a veteran. Just going back home to a job I hate.
