My husband is deployed and it is hard enough trying to play single parent but what makes me feel so much worse is hearing people that are not in the military saying how military wives are "just mooching off the government" and we "Have nothing to complain about because the government pays for our lives". Yes, but the precious time our children and ourselves are sacrificing for our loved ones being gone is, what I would think, enough to explain the pay we get. I can't just let things go and hearing this has broken my heart. Why are people so cruel?Answer Question

I want to thank your husband for serving our country and you and your family for supporting him while he does it.

That is nonsense. You and your family are making great sacrifices for our country and you should be compensated for doing so. Hold you head high and ignore those obviously ignorant people.

I'm with the other moms on this one. The only compaints I've heard is that we (The U.S.A) spends too much fighting 2 wars. But nothing about the pay or benefits you or your family gets. Believe me, I have the utmost respect for our men & women serving our country & to the family they leave behind to live life w/out them for months at a time. I dont know how you do it. I dont think I could. God Bless you & your family & I hope he comes home safe to you & your family soon! :) Hold your head high b/c you all represent what's right about this country! :)
