Story from MyArmyReserve blog, the home of the Warrior-Citizen
Lt. Gen. Jack C. Stultz and his wife, Laura Stultz have served as a “military family” for over 35 years. They’ve faced many of the same challenges other military families have: Deployments, separation, and adapting back to “life as normal.” What both the Chief & Mrs. Stultz also recognize is that the strain of service, on both the Soldier and the spouse, has never been greater. That’s why their commitment to programs & resources to support Spouses, Soldiers and families is unwavering. Their continued development of these initiatives is their way of saying thanks to all those who serve as military spouses.
By our own personal experiences and talking to a number of other Soldiers in theater, as well as spouses, it is clear to us the harder job in many ways is to be the person at home taking care of the kids and having sleepless nights as you pray for safe return. Your have made difficult decisions on your own – calling on your inner reserve of strength to nurture family life so your service member can focus on the business at hand.
