Support Military Spouses had the honor and privilege to be featured on TODAY.com. SMS was contacted by Terri Peters, a TODAY.com Contributor, in order to be interviewed to help provide more information on ways to help military families during their loved ones deployment. SMS is thrilled to be featured in such an empowering article and to be quoted alongside those that are currently a spouse, active duty, or are now a Veteran.
Diane Rumley, Co-Founder of Support Military Spouses, was quoted in two parts of the article, the quotes can be found in #3 and #5 of the article. The topic for #3 is “Be careful what you say.”
“It may seem obvious, but the number one complaint spouses have is to please not ask things such as, ‘Has your spouse been shot?’ or ‘Have they seen any action?’ The last thing the spouse wants to think about is combat,” said Rumley. “The second biggest complaint is when people ask, ‘Do you enjoy your husband being gone?’ or say, ‘You’re lucky to have that time away from him.’”
