6/26/06: Home Fires Burning
By Jennifer Napier-Pearce
Salt Lake City, UT – The nightly news reminds us of the sacrifice and dangers active military face in the field, and we all know what a joyful reunion looks like from Alfred Eisenstaedt's 1945 photograph of a nurse and a sailor locked in a passionate dip. But what about the long days, weeks and months of separation in between? How do military families cope with day-to-day life at home when a loved one is deployed for a year or more? Guest host Jennifer Napier-Pearce talks to Karen Houppert, author of "Home Fires Burning: Married to the Military -- for Better or Worse," and to Utahns who have loved ones serving overseas.
