When Your Military Service Loved One is Gone for the Holidays
It may be your spouse, child, sibling, parent, another family member or a close friend. Regardless of who it is, if you have a loved one serving in the military, whether overseas or in another part of the US, the holidays can be an especially difficult time. Although you miss them every day, somehow during the holiday season you miss them even more. Maybe it’s because the holidays are a time of family gatherings and traditions. If it is your spouse, it can be especially difficult to watch the kids opening gifts without mom or dad there to witness it.
