Living with family separation and reunion

You have experienced, you are presently experiencing or you are about to experience a family separation related to your spouse’s military service? Military life means frequent absences. There is a constant need to adapt, be it before or during absences, and also during reintegration. That is the very reason for this group: allowing you to share with other spouses who are also learning to adapt to military life.
