Often, when people find out that my husband is in the military and was deployed, their response would be "I'm sorry".
That statement always took me by surprise.
Yesterday, I was watching E1 during her karate class. I began chatting with the mother next to me. During the conversation, I mentioned that my husband just returned from deployment and was in the military. She said, "I'm so sorry"
I replied, "There's nothing to be sorry about... we volunteered to do this"
