[quote=LT_77]I hear this all the time and don't buy it. Sure, they have to endure handling the home while you are gone but they aren't in the Army. They don't do PT, go to the field, get deployed and dodge IEDs and ambushes. Ok so they are lonely at home, heck I'm lonely being away while squatting over some cat hole trench in a foreign country.[/quote]
hooah. best post of the day goes to......
give a tissue to all those fans of army wives lol.
Alot of active duty wives/spouses dont work so they got it made. I give more credit to the civilian wife that works as well and raises kids. Now that is hard. But hey I dealt with the anxiety attacks and everything else from family members. The fear of losing a spouse is what makes it hard and that is similar to the spouse of a cop or fireman.
