Destructive Competition

Recently I had witnessed another wife of a wounded soldier question the other about her husband’s disability percentage and health issues. She then stated how lucky the wife is for having a husband “that disabled.”

Why would someone say such a horrible thing? It isn’t like someone wins the jackpot by being a TBI patient or a double above-the-knee amputee.

Each of our soldiers suffer. Whether it is the invisible wounds of TBI and PTSD, to someone with a limb salvage, none of our wounded have it easy and furthermore, neither do any of us wives who support them.

I will not stand to listen to anyone debase another wife about this. We need to stand together and be supportive of this not so easy life.
