Deployment Marriage

Marriage to service members presents unique obstacles; military-to-military marriages can pose even more challenges, but service members find the upsides.

The Air Force recently released a story about a marriage that took place while both service members were deployed. Very interesting story you can find here: http://www.af.mil/news/story.asp?id=123216930

While most of us don’t have a reason to think about the types of sacrifices service members make, it is humbling to think about having to even compromise on one of the biggest days, such as the wedding day. Missed holidays, birthdays and anniversaries are common in the military community and while we may never be able to understand the sacrifices we can appreciate all that service members do.

    I must be getting old. I remember when marriage was discouraged in the Forces early in one’s career.
    And over the years I served with several husband and wife teams in several shore commands.
