Mike Schindler, founder of Operation Military Family, says married members of the U.S. armed forces need to be counseled in advance of deployments about how active duty will affect their marriages. And not wait until there's already a problem.
Schindler says there is an alarming rate of divorce, suicide and mental illness and criminal activity among members of the military who return to civilian life but feel a disconnect. Because they were so ingrained in the military way of life, they have trouble, he says, transitioning into life out of uniform.
Schindler's comments came during an interview on News Talk Online on Paltalk.com.
