They want the extra money every month, they want to shop at the commisary and p.x., they want the insurance. . .but they also want to be able to tell the govt. how long and when they can be sent away? Can't have it both ways ladies!!
I speak as someone that was married to a reg A.F. man for nine years. I know what it's like to be alone, raising kids, doing everything by yourself. But I also know that I accepted that possibility when I married him!!
So stop yer bitchin' already!!! Do they really think that it makes their husbands/wives feel better about being overseas, in a hostile environment, scared for themselves and their friends and their families when they hear the constant whine from back here?
I don't think so.
Ok, off my soap box.
