Paula Deen Cries with America's Military Wives

Most women worry when their husbands are late getting home from the office--but these women worry about their husbands coming home at all.

Imagine if your husband didn't come home from the office for months, sometimes years at a time. And then imagine that while he was at the office he was doing one of THE most dangerous jobs in the world--guiding fighter jets onto the deck of an aircraft carrier in pitch-black darkness.

Or what if your husband's office wasn't a 30-minute commute away--instead, it was thousands of miles away in a war-torn part of the world where people are coming home in body bags. Well, that's what thousands of military wives in America are dealing with right now--while their husbands are defending our freedom.

Momlogic contributor and Food Network star Paula Deen wanted to know exactly what it's like to be married to some of this country's finest and bravest, so she sat down with three military wives during a recent visit to Norfolk, Va.

Paula and the women laughed and cried--and everyone came away knowing that the wives and children who are left behind in wartime are the unsung heroes. They need to be recognized and thanked.

As a member of the NJ Benevolent and Protective Order of Elks, one the programs we support is our Vets. An off shoot of this is “the Army of Hope” which supports our brave men and women and their families for their dedication and defense of our freedoms. We do this by serving lunches to the troops and their families before they deploy to Iraq, support the supply pantry for the families that are still at home and have fund raisers to help support the troops and families abroad and when they come home. God bless you Paula for taking the time to talk too and support the families of our troops. This interview brought me to tears as I was reminded once again of the sacrifice not only of our solders but their families as well.

I was a Vet’s wife and now a Soldier’s mother. I pray for all of them. They are all my children. A food pantry is an excellent idea. I’ll be checking on one in this area. God bless all of them. A mother
