I'm curious by nature. I think every wife probably wants to know what sort of things their husbands experienced in war, to somehow be able to understand.
It's been several years since hubby was in Iraq, but it hasn't been until recently that he's finally in a place to share stories from those months. He shared one experience the other night. The kids were put to bed and we had a few moments to talk. He just started talking about the men under his command, their personalities, their first days out in the area, and then shared an experience of when they were caught off guard in a bad situation.
How do your spouses deal with their deployments?
