And here is the other perspective....

Today, after raising 3 children, I find myself once again mothering toddlers. My son is serving in Iraq and his wife, after being out of the Army for over 2 years, received the same notice to report as part of the ready reserve. She reported earlier this year and today my 2 granddaughters live with me. I am over 50 years of age, work full time+ and now am mothering 2 beautiful little princesses while their parents fight for freedom which allows the rest of us to speak our mind and say "no" when we don't feel like fulfilling our duty. Do my son and daughter-in-law miss their children - everyday. Do their children miss them - oh yeah! But, they also gets lots of TLC and love spending time with Grandma, aunt, uncles and cousins while waiting for Mom and Dad to return home. They know Mommy and Daddy are at work fighting bad guys and helping children. They talk to Mom and Dad when they can call home. Along with Mom and Dad, they are my HEROES!! I am proud of my son and daughter-in-law and fully support their obligation to our Military.
