    Good for them. I have friends in the service, whose lives have been turned upside down, by constant re-deployments.
    Hopefully these "first wives" will also help some of my countrymen to focus – the people who were the biggest fans of the NEO-CON GARBAGE

    How do you think military families would react to candidates from a party that has tried to close and successfully closed VA hospitals. A party that cut off other forms of support to service men and women and their immediate families.

    Pick any of the leaders in recent GOT Party polls, and how do think each would recieved by military families.
