Making the decision to serve in the United States Armed Forces is an admirable one. The life comes with numerous challenges, including balancing work with family life. The stresses put on military families can sometimes result in a breakdown of the marriage and lead to divorce.
We rely on police, firefighters, first responders and our military to protect us during accidents and emergencies. They perform some of the most difficult jobs in the world. But we don't always recognize the mental, physical and emotional toll these jobs take on the people who do them and their families.
