A little note: Kate and Lydia aren't military. But Kate's husband works for the US government and his job is to work on the effort to help our troops and the people of Afghanistan. So he goes there a couple of times a year for long stretches. 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.
