As I sit here a long way from home and the communication equipment between me and my family fails, threatening to take my sanity with it, I’ve been getting a small taste of what it is like for our military. I’m not anywhere like Afghanistan and no one is shooting at me (though there are probably some who want to hit me) and I can still talk to my wife and kid most any time of the day. But I wonder how those other families manage. If you know one of them and you can, take some time to help them. It is harder than most can imagine. It’s still harder than I can imagine.
