We often talk to troops on our show about their time overseas. But what
about the wives and husbands back at home? While their significant others
fight a war, they're paying the bills and picking up the kids. What's it
like when your husband is hardly home? How do you tell your kids that Mom
or Dad will be gone for a year? And how do you deal with signs of PTSD when
your spouse returns? As one wife said, "I married the kindest, most
compassionate man. But a different person came home." A group of military
spouses join us to talk about what life is like on the homefront, and what
happens when the deployment is over.

You won’t find a paywall here. Come as often as you like — we’re not counting. You’ve found a like-minded tribe that cherishes what a free press stands for. If you can spend another couple of minutes making a pledge of as little as $5, you’ll feel like a superhero defending democracy for less than the cost of a month of Netflix.
