    My hats off to current active duty military. My husband was 5 years Air Force. I think deployments and working away from home are different than being at home and working long hours while at home. My husband just got back from 2 weeks in India, and I confess there were days that I was resentful that he was in 75 degree weather while I was shoveling the snow alone.
