I do believe the purpose of this board is to send messages of support to our military families, not to digress into your own reasons why we should or should not be there, or whether women should be in combat or not. You should stick to voicing your support and keep your own political views off this board...there are other discussions, I am sure, to talk about your disapproval.
As the spouse of an active duty sailor currently deployed in the middle east, I can tell you that we don't need to hear about someone else's political views. It doesn't change our situation, or our reality. My heart is still going to stop momentarily when I hear a knock at the door, and my children are still going to miss their father. I will still have to explain to my 5 year old why her daddy can't be home for Christmas, and I am still going to have to wipe their tears away while trying to stay strong for them. And I am still going to keep on going in the face of fear, anger and disappointment. The fact that you disagree with women in combat doesn't change anything for me one iota.
For all of the other spouses who are, like me, surviving day by day I want you to know that I feel your pain and it sure sucks. No matter how many times I say I am sorry, it won't change anything, so I won't say it. I will just say stay strong, reach out to one another, and live for that day when you will be reunited.
