AIR DATE: April 12, 2010

We often talk to troops on our show about their time overseas. But what about the wives and husbands back at home? While their significant others fight a war, they're paying the bills and picking up the kids. What's it like when your husband is hardly home? How do you tell your kids that Mom or Dad will be gone for a year? And how do you deal with signs of PTSD when your spouse returns? As one wife said, "I married the kindest, most compassionate man. But a different person came home." A group of military spouses join us to talk about what life is like on the homefront, and what happens when the deployment is over.

Guests:
Annie, Air Force spouse
Tammie, Marine Corps reservist spouse
Erin Sahlstein, Prof of Communication Studies, UNLV and is seeking military families for study about deployment and communicationbr>
