Your children have grown and matured. Everyone will need to recognize such changed circumstances and make an effort to adjust to these new family realities.

In addition, unlike Active Duty military members, the families of members of the National Guard and Reserve Troops are not enmeshed in a community that shares their common plight.

Suicide bombers are rampant, unleashing their vengeance at busy marketplaces, police stations, religious gatherings, and other public places, wounding dozens and taking many lives. You can’t help but become numb to the grisly and threatening reality of it.

These dangers include random, incoming, indirect fire that can occur many times a day, more days than not.
