Without quoting again....

I think you are right Karoz, I mean the same thing could have happened had this young woman been called away for National Guard Duty to Kansas for an extended period of time.

I have equal respect for a spouse of a soldier and that soldier. It takes a lot to be married and devoted to someone deployed overseas and in constant danger. Not everyone is up for the task. The divorce rates of military couples is extremely high. The probability of staying married while one is deployed is incredibly low. It's sad, but it's true. When it hits the fan, people run instead of face it. I salute the most honorable people of our country, those fighting and those holding down that soldier's home here.

I hope this unfortunate story can be a lesson to other people planning on joining the military or planning on marrying someone joining the military. Wait and don't have kids. You'll hurt many more than just yourself.


Well said and my thoughts exactly ;-D

As usual ORS hit the nail on the head. The military is not family friendly. What kid doesn't suffer when their mom or dad is sent away for months or even years. To award custody of a child to a single parent in the military is wrong. The only way this would make since is if the other parent was abusive.

When I was in the service I served in the Middle East during the first Iraq war. I remember waiting in line to use the only phone to call home for Christmas. I can clearly remember grown men who I respected crying while talking to their families. I vowed at that time to not have children while in the service. To me it wasn't worth it.

Sporting events are family events. If you can't watch your language for 3 hours then stay home.
