This woman appears to be frustrated with her perceptions of what a military family is, therefore joining the rest of the disgruntled citizens who are, perhaps each for their own reasons, refusing to support the troops.
Active support of the troops is not required and people have the right to voice their opinions, but no one has the right to abuse the servicemen or their families.
I am a soldier in the Australian Army. I am only a reservist and have only worn my uniform in public, before heading to my barracks, twice. Both times I have received nothing but abuse from multiple people. Taunting and showing hostility to servicemen is completely unnecessary. Perhaps this is why we call civilians 'civies'. I'm not saying everyone should show the utmost appreciation by lauding us for all time. Many others and I just believe that people should cease abusing us because they see us as different.
Yes our lives are different. We and our families are required to move residence every few years, be absent from each other through constant training exercises, and face the fact that we may be deployed for long periods of time in which death may occur. Yes we receive benefits, just like anyone put at a disadvantage in their lives; the government tries to compensate them.
I have a partner, I am only a reservist but the pain she suffers simply by not being able to contact me on training exercises is almost too much to bear. The pain suffered by military wives is genuine, please don't deny it.
