My DH is not military, but federal law enforcement. He is away from home and often out of the country for extended periods of time for the job. Although my situation is not exactly the same, he has a dangerous job that takes him away from home for months at a time. You ladies seem to be supportive and have really good avice. I sometimes feel like the other boards don't totally understand what my family goes through (although I realize I don't totally fit in here either.) Just wondering if you'd mind if I posted every now and then with a related question....thanks!
