His proposed rules would put active duty service members and their spouses on equal footing when purchasing a firearm. Rigell drafted the legislation in...

    …or maybe just a b___h. How to leave a soldier The war on terror may be impossible to resolve. Ending my marriage was easy I probably shouldn’t have read this story, being where I am and knowing some of things that I do. I have absolutely zero sympathy for this woman. You’d be surprised how easy it is to leave a soldier on deployment. You can do it with a letter. (He can’t argue with you. He doesn’t have a phone.) If you lay the groundwork early, saying to the soldier before he leaves, “This will be the end of...

    WASHINGTON, Sept. 30, 2008 – President Bush signed an executive order this week that will make it easier for spouses of servicemembers to get federal jobs.

    Dear Abby: Q: I am writing to tell you about some of the bravest, strongest, most resilient people I know — military spouses. So often people write you about problems, troubles or issues. Perhaps my letter will bring a smile to someone's face. I am in the Army, currently deployed in Iraq. Here, all I have to worry about are my soldiers and myself. They are great guys who make it easy for me, since they all act maturely and professionally. While I am here, my wife is back home worrying about me. She does all the chores around the...
