My husband isn't in special ops and he's not in the Air Force. He's a soldier in the regular Army.
But I would hazard a guess that Special Ops lives aren't that much different than Special Forces in the Army and we had a close friend who was.
The biggest difference is that they leave at the drop of a hat, and can't tell you where they're going and what they'll be doing. You may not hear from him until they get back.
Personally, I would think it would be hard. I know when my husband is leaving, sometimes months ahead of time. I know where he's going (or roundabout where he's going) and I know that he'll contact me whenever possible.
Good Luck in finding answers to this, because it is kind of smething that people aren't supposed to talk about.
