Guest Perspective: Making it Work - One Deployment at a Time

Many years ago, I just had one name and one role.  I was Katie.  That’s who I was, and that was all.  Throughout this journey of life, I have adopted and adapted to other names and other roles.  I have been Airman, Miss, and teacher.  About ten years ago, I became wife.  That was a major role change on its own, but I added “military wife” to it as well.  Having been a military member myself, the military lifestyle wasn’t so hard to adapt to until I added my next name, Mama. 

Guest Perspective: Parents of Service Members - An Underserved Sub-culture of America’s Armed Forces

This scenario played out 14 years ago, as the USS Constellation prepared to deploy in support of Operation Enduring Freedom, and I remember that morning like it happened yesterday. On October 2, 2002, my son joined a new generation of heroes that left to safeguard our country.

Guest Perspective: Resilience as Acceptance

My husband and I joined the military in 2008 as psychology residents with the vague, distant understanding that deployment was a possibility for both of us. Just like anything that seems stressful and perhaps mildly unpleasant, but too far in the future, we paid little attention to our fears and concerns. However, I don’t think either of us anticipated that our experience with deployment would coincide with the birth of our one and only child.

Staff Perspective: Military Couples - Challenges and Survival Strategies

Most military couples would agree that military life offers a fair number of challenges.  I reached out to some “real life” experts – military couples who have been around the block a time or two – to learn from their wealth of experience.  Their marriages have collectively seen hundreds of deployments, PCSs, TDYs, and other major military family events – they have experienced ups, downs, and in-betweens – and they have some amazing stories to tell.  I asked them to share the greatest challenges they have faced as military couples and the survival strategies that have kept them going.
