A little note: Kate and Lydia aren't military. But Kate's husband worked for the US government and his job was to work on the effort to help our troops and the people of Afghanistan. So he went there several times for weeks/months as time. Also, some of Kate and Lydia's best friends are military mommies. All this adds up to SO MUCH LOVE and appreciation for military families.
