    “Thanks for a very good view of the family's side. I think as soldiers we all know that the problems are there, unfortunately many feel helpless. We see what is happening and don't know what to do about it. Thank God for strong wives and stronger kids but good family services will always be needed and so must be supported.” — Achorn, 11 Nov 2010
