Why I Wish Your Husband Would Deploy | SpouseBUZZ.com

See on Scoop.itLiving Leadership

One of the rules of military life is that you never wish a deployment on anybody. You never wish that someone else’s husband would miss Christmas morning. You never wish someone else’s wife missed seeing her kid learn to swim.

No matter how much some civilian sighs and actually wishes OUT LOUD that her husband or wife or partner would deploy when yours has been gone for months, you never, ever, wish that on them, too.

Nice people just don’t do that.

Matthew Fritz‘s insight:

Empty chairs at the table are just one of the many facets of challenge military families will be overcoming this holiday season.  The families are the unsung heroes on a seldom talked-about front who cope and adapt to the deployment, as well.  To all military wives, husbands, parents and children: you are ALSO not forgotten!
