“One of the hardest parts of being a wife of a SEAL that is different from a corporate guy who is gone a lot, or a fireman/policeman that risks his life every day is going to bed every night wondering where he is, is he OK, is he afraid, will I ever hear his voice again, will I ever see him again, and waking up wondering where he is, is he OK, is he afraid, will I ever see him again, will I ever hear his voice again, for six months, and then doing it all over again…and again…and again.”
On good days, after a night at Danny’s Bar with a choice of beauties, a bachelor SEAL might make a vow to remain so eternally. But on bad days – after the death
of a Team member or a night entrenched under enemy fire – a married SEAL knows beyond honor, duty and doubt why he must keep fighting. His family is waiting for him to come home.
When men deploy physically, wives and children deploy emotionally. Mothers will spend years of their lives as single parents. They will make sacrifices and worry endlessly. While life goes on around them, they will wait for him to come home.
