You wanted to say...:

I just wanted to thank you for pointing out the situation that most military families are in. My husband is in the Coast Guard, and while he is not fighting in Iraq right now, some Coast Guard members are. And our situation is very similar to those you described. We have a 7 month old daughter, so I do not work, if I did it would be merely enough to pay for day care, and why let someone else raise my child? We are not as bad off as some of the people you described, but we do receive WIC for baby food, etc. It's tough and you'd really think this country could do a little more for our military families. Thanks for bringing it up. And I totally disagree with this war by the way. Praying for our soldiers is supporting them, not the war in my book. And yes, Peace is Patriotic. - Kris
