The Home Fires are Burning .... Military Families, Communities are Coming Apart at the Seams

An interesting share from a military town resident during the online chat with Karen de Young of the Washington Post about The War Over The War:

Fort Stewart, Ga.: I saw the President's visit to Iraq. If I didn't know better I'd think the White House believes that public opinion on the war will change when the right image is put up on the TV screen. I just don't get any of this anymore. People ought to come to Hinesville, Ga., and see what is happening here. Drug abuse, wife abuse, problems with kids acting up -- all because parents are gone all the time, because they are never at home. It's tearing this town apart.

Drug abuse, wife abuse, problems with kids acting up -- all because parents are gone all the time, because they are never at home. It's tearing this town apart.

There are reports from all over the country of the devastating toll Bush's Illegal War of Choice is having on military and national guard families as well as the veterans themselves, which much like the Walter Reed scandal will eventually be revealed. More shock and awe.
