I wouldn't say that we are a military family although my father, father-in-law, various uncles, my husband and my son and my son-in-law have all served in the military. The current count of active duty members in my immediate family is two--my son who is an Army Reserve Chaplain currently deployed and my son-in-law who is a US Marine.
What's it like to be a military family? My daughter posted this on her blog today:
The next time you see a man or woman in uniform, thank them for serving. And thank their families, too.
